Why study this course?

Biology is the study of the science of living things and helps us to make sense of the world around us. If you are interested in living things, from single cells to human anatomy and the way animals interact with the environment and each other, then biology is for you. If you wish to go into a medical related profession, then biology is a clear choice.

What will I study?

You will study both human and cell biology covering topics such as: biological molecules, cells, human and other animal organ systems, genetics, evolution, respiration, photosynthesis, taxonomy, homeostasis and uses of medical science.

How is this course assessed?

Three, equally weighted, 2 hour exams and required practicals.

What can I study with this course?

Biology combines well with chemistry, physics and psychology. It is also a good combination with mathematics, particularly the statistics section of the mathematics course. However, due to its academic rigour, it is an excellent third subject alongside any level 3 qualification.

Where does this qualification lead?

All sciences are open to you after studying biology. It also leads to qualifications including medicine and nursing along with education and research. You could specialise in the study of animals (zoology), of marine animals (marine biology and oceanography), of plants (botany), or into the microscopic world of biochemistry and biomedical science.
