Comments about BSc Biological Sciences - At the institution - Coventry - West Midlands

  • Objectives
    The Biological Sciences degree spans the entire scale of biological systems – from molecules to ecosystems. It offers broad exposure to basic molecular, cellular and organismal biology while describing applications of the science to agriculture, industry and medicine. Its exceptionally wide range of options allows you to choose modules that are best suited to your personal interests and career ambitions. The first year syllabus is common with the Microbiology/Virology degree, allowing the flexibility to switch degrees within the first year.
  • Entry requirements
    General university admissions requirements All applicants must possess a minimum level of competence in English Language and in Mathematics or a Science. A pass at Grade C or above in GCSE English Language and in Mathematics or a Science, or an equivalent qualification, fulfils this requirement. For some courses, requirements are above this University minimum, so you should check the relevant course-specific entry requirements in our hard copy prospectus which you can order online or browse on our online directory. We usually ask for candidates to show a broad base of study at GCSE level (or equivalent) with passes in at least five subjects from a range of disciplines.
