Learning in the field and lab, focusing on local and global biological issues, you’ll join our Biosciences team – ranked 6th nationally for student experience by the Guardian and The Times.
You’ll start with biochemistry, physiology, taxonomy and the ecology of animals and plants. You can then choose to follow themes that mirror our research specialisms in molecular biology, ecology, global change biology and whole organism biology.
You’ll have the opportunity to progress from field training in the UK to field research overseas, in the Savannah of South Africa, the tropical rainforests of Borneo or mountains of Switzerland.
Throughout, you’ll be guided by lecturers awarded for their teaching excellence and media work, and internationally-recognised for their frontline conservation research in bioscience.
You’ll learn through fieldwork, laboratory analysis, seminars, debates and lectures. Around 75% of assessment is by coursework – through consultancy reports, presentations, essays, scientific reports and practical tests – all with an emphasis on active research areas.
