Biological Sciences (Hons) (with integrated foundation year) offered by University of Brighton opens up opportunities in the sciences if you don't hold the required scientific A-levels or equivalent qualifications to go straight on to the Biological Sciences BSc(Hons), want to change career or simply want to explore the options offered by university-level science.


The emphasis is on practical learning and you will explore biological systems at molecular, cell, tissue and whole organism levels. You will develop skills in our purpose-built ecology, microbiology, molecular biology and tissue culture labs. Biological Sciences (Hons) (with integrated foundation year) is offered by University of Brighton.

Opportunities for fieldwork will further develop your practical skills and you'll be able to get involved in a research project. Destinations for optional field trips currently include South Africa and the Mediterranean. 


You will learn from researchers who are recognised experts in their field, equipping you with the knowledge and skills you need to begin your career in the biological sciences.
