This exciting and innovative biology degree incorporates behavioural sciences to make it more relevant, relatable, and applicable to a broader range of careers. With 75% of the subjects focusing on biology, graduates will be equipped with a strong foundation to further their studies in postgraduate level in the area of neuroscience, and in clinical or pharmaceutical research.
Alongside academic studies, there will also be opportunities to develop research skills and practical experience through working on an innovative independent research project during the final year.
You will also gain valuable experience working in various healthcare industries during the internship component. These skills will give you an edge, opening up career opportunities in the healthcare sector, pharmaceutical industry, food industries, environmental consultancy and related disciplines, as well as in academia.
