What is Life Sciences?
Each time you move to a new topic in Biology do you think this is the one you like most?
Are you sure you love all aspects of biology but can’t decide which degree to choose? Do you worry you might make the wrong choice of degree and miss something you might have enjoyed more? Do you think you know what you have a passion for in biology but would like the chance to be certain? If you have answered “yes” to any of these questions then the BSc in Life Sciences is the degree for you. This degree allows you relatively more freedom of choice in the first year so that you can select a combination of modules, from anatomy to zoology (and lots in between including field courses) that enables you to transfer to the second year of almost any of the degree programmes within the Faculty of Life Sciences. This flexibility will help you to make a decision about your future direction at the end of your first year from a position of greater knowledge. It also means that in your first year tutorial group you will be with students who share your enthusiasm for biological sciences but may have lots of different interests in and ideas about the subject. You can read more about your second year options in Course profiles...
