This course aims to understand the behaviour of living systems from the level of cells up to whole organisms and ecosystems. Certain degrees in Biological Sciences allow students to choose from a broad selection of modules, and others allowing students to specialise in a particular area. Students can combine their training in biological sciences with study of the French language. These classes, taught in French by the Centre for Languages, Culture and Communication, focus on the use and presentation of written and oral scientific and technical material in French. Students will be introduced to the theory and practice of translation, alongside further studies in the history, politics, science and technology of French-speaking countries. In the first year this course will cover modules in core areas of biology and key scientific skills alongside these classes. In the second year, students will study applied biology and genetics, then begin to specialise through optional modules. Students will spend the third year studying in a French-speaking university, where they will attend lectures and conduct a research project. In the final year, students will complete a research project on a topic of their choice and choose from an even wider selection of modules such as evolutionary biology, plant biotechnology and neuroscience. This course is not intended for native or near-native French speakers. Normally only students who are on track for at least a 2:1 by the end of their second year, will be eligible to spend their third year abroad.
