An introduction to the essential topics that comprise the Biological Sciences
Biological Science is the study of all living matter on earth, from human beings to bacteria. Biological sciences comprises of two fundamental disciplines; zoology and plant sciences. The course is however, very broad, stretching from the ecological to the molecular, thus reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of modern biological sciences.
The course will see students approach topics as diverse as biotechnology, animal behavior and molecular genetics. It combines developing a student’s breadth of knowledge with ensuring they also gain a depth of understanding in individual research areas, such as the human body.
Topics may include:
Arguably the most complex living species on the planet, our students will take an in-depth look at human beings, from embryonic development to the development of human disease.
The study of human biology is multi-faceted and students will be learning and discussing some of the most up-to-date scientific advances, such as stem cell research and the possibility of new ways to treat complex diseases.
Working in a lab is an essential part of any Biological Science degree and therefore, students will get the opportunity to work in an undergraduate laboratory on campus. After watching a dissection demonstration first-hand, students will complete a number of individual experiments under expert supervision.
Students on the Biological Sciences course will leave with an increased understanding of both zoology and plant sciences in great detail. Students will feel more comfortable working in a laboratory and will have the confidence to apply for a Biological Sciences, or Natural Sciences course at Oxbridge.
