If you don’t have the right qualifications to start our BSc (Hons) Biology degree or if you want to gain more confidence in higher level work, you could opt to start your studies with a foundation year. You’ll start by completing a foundation year, which provides well structured support, allowing you to develop your scientific skills and knowledge.
Accredited by the Royal Society of Biology, this well-established Biology (Including Foundation Year) (Hons) degree at University of South Wales is ideal if you want an all-round knowledge of biology. Subjects range from medical microbiology to primatology, from genetics to tropical field ecology.
As well as studying the varied habitats accessible in south Wales, our students have the opportunity to learn scientific diving techniques and develop field research skills in the tropical forests and coral reefs of either Asia, Central or South America.
There is high demand for science graduates and graduates of our biology degree have found employment in a range of fields, including research, education, health or conservation. Many biology undergraduates progress to a postgraduate biology degree or science degree, or teaching.
USW’s Biology degree has been accredited by the Royal Society of Biology following an independent and rigorous assessment.
