Aims and Objectives
This course will give you an understanding of biological processes on both the molecular and cellular levels.
Bringing together subjects such as genetics, biochemistry, microbiology and cell biology, this degree will give you a thorough understanding of how living cells work, from generating energy to responding to changes in their environment. You’ll also gain the specialist knowledge in key disciplines that is vital not just in the job market, but in facing some of the biggest challenges facing the world in the 21st century.
This wide-ranging subject studies living organisms, but allows you to choose topics of study depending on your interests. For example, options range from the molecular study of the immune system, disease processes and physiological processes, and if you wish can include global scale study of the environment, ecosystems and biodiversity.
Within Biological Sciences are a range of disciplines including biochemistry, biomedicine, cell biology, conservation, ecology, genetics, microbiology, pathobiology and physiology.
Biological Sciences / Biology courses will suit anyone with an interest in living organisms, either human or other animals, bacteria or plants, as you can select modules that best meet your interests; understanding and curing disease to conservation and the management of biological resources.
The flexibility of this degree scheme is the distinctive feature, students get an amazing opportunity to choose from the whole portfolio of teaching offered to develop a unique degree which reflects their interests.
