|Description:||Our Biology degree scheme offers an excellent range of laboratory and field-based topics with a strong emphasis on the development of key practical skills. Most modules in Biology have two or three practical and/or field excursion classes. All students have the opportunity to attend week-long field courses either at the end of Year Two or at the start of Year Three.
Our close proximity to a diverse range of contrasting environments plus our own facilities provides a wide scope for customising your learning experience. All Biology students carry out a ten week research project module in Year Three. This can be either laboratory or field-based depending on the interests of the student. Some students carry out their projects abroad. The course has a strong emphasis on the development of personal and transferable skills to assist in later employability.
