How is climate change affecting marine life? What happens in the brain while you are asleep? Biologists aim to describe and explain biodiversity and make predictions about its future development. Biology ranges in scope from sub-molecular processes to ecosystems. Important overlapping fields of biology are heredity and neuronal aspects of behaviour, molecular biology, host-pathogen interactions, speciation and ecological interactions.
Is this the programme for you?
You are interested in how living organisms work and in knowing more about how diseases like cancer develop. You are interested in the human influence on land and coastal ecosystems. Compared with biology at secondary school, this degree involves other sciences: you will study chemistry, mathematics and also some physics. If this appeals to you, then our BSc in Biology will be a perfect choice.
