Biology

What will I study?
Biology is related to many areas of our life including food safety, agriculture, medicine, sport and scientific
research. You will learn about the nature of life from the molecules and chemicals that life is built upon to the way populations of the world’s living organisms develop and live together. Biology is a very hands-on subject and there will be regular practical work in class. Your study will involve some dissection of animal and plant material. Data analysis also forms an integral part of the course so you need to be confident using Maths. 

How will I be assessed?
Examination + practical endorsement.

What can I do next?
Biologists can be found in many places, including medicine, dentistry, physiotherapy, veterinary medicine, laboratory work, forensics, pathology and nursing. Biology is also  well respected for a wide range of non-science related courses and careers because it helps you to develop analytical, practical and investigative skills.
