About BSc Biology

A key strength of studying biology at Bristol is exposure to the breadth of biological sciences, from enzymes through to ecosystems. During your study you will gain knowledge of the diversity, evolution and functions of living organisms and the interactions between animals, microbes and plants. Our course reflects the interdisciplinary nature of modern biology, taking into account the past, present and future of life on Earth.

Our biology degree starts broadly and then introduces more choice in years two and three, giving you the freedom to specialise or maintain breadth in your studies depending on your interests. The range of research-oriented and transferable skills you will learn will also enhance your employability as a graduate.

We have outstanding facilities in our brand new state-of-the-art Life Sciences Building and our lecturers are top researchers in their fields.
