Comments about BSC Biology - At the institution - Nottingham - Nottinghamshire

  • Objectives
    Providing a comprehensive, modern treatment of microbial, plant and animal (including human) biology, this degree emphasises many of the specialisms which, by virtue of recent rapid advances in biotechnology, are strengthening the impact that biology has on society. Coverage of these specialisms - which range from molecular genetics to conservation - prepares graduates for careers in both biological and non-biological disciplines.
  • Entry requirements
    Required subjects: 3 A levels to include Biology and a second science, preferably from Chemistry, Physics or Mathematics. Geography will also be considered if in combination with a second science at AS level. IB score: 32-34 (5/6 Biology + 1 other science at higher level)

    BSC Biology


    Year one

    In this year, you will find out more about the biology of animals, plants and microbes and the biochemical, evolutionary and genetic processes that underlie their biology. The experimental approach forms a key component to the year, with courses teaching practical skills and the principles of experimental design and analysis.

    Year two

    In this year, you will find more advanced courses available, with a high degree of choice. In addition to modules in Genetic Engineering and Microbial Biology, you can choose from a range including the Behavioural Ecology Field Course, Biological Photography and Imaging, Parasitology, Immunology, Medical Genetics, Plant Science, Pharmacology, Chromosome Biology, Neurobiology, Evolution and Embryology. Modules in Science Communication and Experimental Design also feature strongly.

    Year three

    The third year includes a practical research project, which will allow you to carry out your own biological investigation. The main theme of the third year is diversity and choice and you will be able to choose from a wide range of available modules in bioethics, neurobiology, genetics, plant science, ecology and behaviour, conservation genetics, immunology and developmental biology.
