Queen Mary University of London

Course Introduction

If you want a broad'based degree covering the whole of the biological sciences from human disease to ecology and evolution, this is the programme to choose. 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 specialise.

Those interested in ecology, conservation or animal biology might take advantage of our wide range of field courses – for example, studying large mammals in South Africa or ecological interactions in Croatia – while others might prefer to opt for modules in neuroscience, developmental biology or the molecular basis of disease. Students who want to study a broad range of subjects will enjoy the great flexibility that this programme offers.

Our programme gives you the opportunity to gain practical, real'world skills and experience through in'depth laboratory practicals and a range of residential field courses. Our strong emphasis on fieldwork offers students a wide range of opportunities in the UK and abroad, including:
