What you'll learn on the course


Course programme

Year 1 provides an introduction to several core themes related to biology, including molecular and cell biology, microbiology, genetics and immunology, together with a skills module which develops practical and data-handling skills through weekly laboratory classes and tutorials. You’ll have the opportunity to go on field courses to study biology in the environment. Alongside these modules, you will study the processes involved in strategic business planning and management.

In Year 2, you will continue to study biology and the continued development of your skills will be supported through modules that integrate regular tutorials, laboratory practicals and data-handling exercises. You will also gain a more focused insight into the essential elements of the business world.

In Year 3 you will continue a coordinated programme of biology and enterprise to develop a broad range of skills. There is strong emphasis on independent learning, problem-solving and data analysis taught in the context of biology. You will complete an extended individual project as part of a research group in the School of Biology. You will also continue to develop your understanding of business practices in preparation for your project in enterprise.

Integrated Masters (MBiol)You can study the Biology with Enterprise degree as an MBiol.
