Biosciences is the study of life, from ecosystems and populations to the molecular components. It’s a subject that has a significant impact on our daily lives.

Modern bioscience integrates knowledge and understanding of life over a range of scales and perspectives; from evolution, biodiversity and ecology through to genetics, biochemistry and molecular biology. You’ll study a broad introduction to the biosciences and develop skills to generate, analyse and interpret experimental data, drawing conclusions and asking questions about areas of uncertainty and future research.

Options in specialist areas provide opportunities to tailor your degree, as well as develop transferable skills for a wide range of careers.
