From human disease to ecology and evolution, this is the programme to choose if you want a broad'based degree covering the whole of the biological sciences. In your first year, you will cover subjects including genetics, evolution, physiology and biochemistry. In the second and final years, you can either retain this broad approach or choose to specialise. Those interested in ecology, conservation or animal biology might choose to take advantage of our wide range of field courses ' for example, studying Tropical Ecology in pristine rainforest in Borneo ' while others might prefer to opt for modules in neuroscience, developmental biology or the molecular basis of disease.
Year 1: Core units: Essential skills for biologists; heredity and gene action; cell dynamics; diversity of life; evolution; ecology; basic biochemistry; introductory chemistry. Year 2: Core units: 1 environmental and 1 molecular unit minimum. Year 3: Core units: Conservation biology; integrative studies in biological sciences; biology project.
