Biology BSc Honours
UCAS Code: C100 (3 Years)


Red spider miteOur Biology BSc Honours degree is the widest-ranging of our degrees, examining everything from micro-organisms to mammals, and biomolecules to the biosphere.

In the first year all our students study the same fundamental topics, such as plant biology, microbiology and ecology.

In later Stages, you will have a choice of specialist topics, many of which are linked to our research expertise, such as:

  • plant biology and pathology
  • biodiversity and conservation
  • animal ecophysiology

Lab-based sessions equip you with the scientific skills required by professional biologists. 

You gain practical experience through a species identification course, and a choice between a week-long course on ecology, animal behaviour or the application of molecular techniques.
