In the first year all our students study the same fundamental topics, such as plant biology, microbiology and ecology. In later Stages, you will study specialist topics such as:

  • molecular biology and development
  • biotechnology
  • immunology
  • bioremediation

You will develop the scientific skills required by professional biologists through lab-based sessions, including a specialist week-long laboratory workshop. You'll also enjoy a range of day trips and residential field courses.
