Overview

Biology is one of the most actively changing subjects in the sciences, with biologists constantly seeking solutions to the many challenges that shape our world. At Worcester we engage with Biology at every level, from the molecular level through whole organisms and beyond to their relationships with each other and the wider environment.

You’ll have the opportunity to undertake unique project opportunities based on your area of interest, such as deciphering the genome of a bacterial species. You’ll also get to explore the latest discoveries and their relationship with established biological principles.

Career opportunities

The course prepares you for a number of degree paths including scientific researcher within government, industry or medical institutions, nature conservation, a range of public sector work and a teaching career. Many of our graduates go on to further study through masters and PhD degrees.

The Biological Sciences courses have a strong applied component. We have retained a great deal of practical and field work, both of which have been greatly reduced in many universities; these give our students an advantage when seeking employment or continuing their studies through a higher degree. This has suited students well for careers in the laboratory or the field. Some are engaged in research or education and some undertake medical qualifications or complete higher degrees.

There are many opportunities to extend your experience and enhance your CV by carrying out voluntary work. Staff members in the Institute have links with several Wild Life Trusts (including Worcestershire Wildlife Trust) and other environmental and conservation agencies, Sea Life Centres, Safari Parks etc. and can help organise voluntary work (which can feed into Independent Studies projects in the final year of study). There has also been the possibility for students to gain experience by volunteering to work within the Environmental Sustainability Eco Campus initiative.
