Biological Sciences is for those who love life. Whether you want to stand in a metre of mud, on top of a tree, under the sea or on a kilometre of Antarctic ice, biology is for you.
Biological Sciences incorporates the major traditional biological disciplines of botany, microbiology and zoology with the interdisciplinary subjects of biochemistry, physiology, genetics, ecology and behaviour. In Biological Sciences you have many opportunities: you can be a botanist with interests in the evolution of plants, a marine biologist fascinated by the ocean's ecosystems, or a freshwater scientist looking at the structure and function of water.
