The Biology programme at the University of Leeds offers you an additional year of specialist training. You’ll be introduced to advanced topics such as Host-Parasite Interactions and Infection Diseases.
Biology impacts on everything from global warming and climate change to the challenges associated with a growing world population and its impact on the environment, food security, medicine, health, disease and an ageing population.
New technologies, including genomics in medicine, gene modification and biotechnology and digital sensing are transforming the world around us and the way we live. You will be equipped to understand and push forward these new developments, with the skills and knowledge of the fundamental biological processes required to make the future advances.
As well as providing you with subject-specific knowledge, we aim to equip you with the best possible skills for a variety of future careers. All of our degrees have a strong emphasis on practical based teaching, small group teaching, online learning and problem-solving.
Throughout the degree, you’ll gain a wide range of transferable skills which are highly valued by employers. Supported by the Leeds for Life scheme and your academic and personal tutor, you’ll be ideally placed to focus on your personal development and make the most of your time at university.
