This 4-year degree offers broad-based training in biological sciences and prepares graduates for challenging careers in Life Sciences research and industry. It provides a strong foundation in biological sciences that can include technology and business elements.

The study of biology is highly relevant to everyday life. At some point, we discovered that we are fascinated by living systems. As the knowledge base in the biological sciences grows exponentially and technology becomes ever more sophisticated, the ability to think broadly about biology and to apply your knowledge across boundaries of disciplines will inevitably become a very valuable and powerful asset both in the scientific environment and many walks of life.

  • An established and recognised direct honours Biological Sciences degree programme 
  • Option for international exchange with over 150 partner universities 
  • Compulsory Internship 
  • Option to take up a final year project 
  • Option to take a minor in any discipline

At least H1/SL or equivalent pass in Mathematics and a good H2/HL/A Level or equivalent pass in Physics, Chemistry or Biology.
