Biologists protect the future. On this accredited BSc (Hons) Biology degree, you’ll discover how biology helps safeguard endangered species and fight disease, and get the skills you need to turn your curiosity and love of nature into a career that matters.
This degree is accredited by the Royal Society of Biology, so you can apply for Associate Membership after graduation.
You’ll start the course with key biological theories, then choose from a wide range of options to move on to specialist areas like ecology, cell biology or biotechnology. You’ll put your knowledge to work in our genetics and microbiology labs or our research greenhouse, using the same equipment as professional biologists.
You’ll get out in the field on trips to assess the biodiversity in locations in the UK (e.g. Devon) and overseas (e.g. Mexico). In your final year, you’ll have the opportunity to investigate a research question for your honours project.
After graduation, you’ll have the practical skills needed to work in roles across research, biotech, education and journalism.
