This course intends to enhance students’ understanding of the health and wellbeing of humans and animals, the biology of molecules and cellular systems, and the biological challenges facing humankind in a changing world. Students will develop the research and analysis, presentation, communication, problem-solving and writing skills that are essential in all employment sectors. This programme builds on the in-depth foundation in biology, biochemistry and genetics in their first year. Students will focus on specialist fields with more project-oriented lab work covering areas such as cell biology, genetics and ecology in their second year. Students can also attend an optional field course subsidised by the School (a financial contribution is required), with recent destinations including Pembrokeshire (Wales) and the CEBIMar, São Sebastiãn (Brazil). The third year will be spent on a work placement, either in the UK or abroad, or on a study abroad programme. In the fourth year, students will study a core module in Dynamics of Biological Systems and complete a challenging full-time research project on an area of particular academic interest. This may be lab-based or involve data analysis.
