In the Biological and Biomedical Sciences programme of Trinity College Dublin, students will study the core concepts that are fundamental to all biological systems. These will be presented in core modules during the first and second year.


Biology is the study of living things; we explore how life first arose: the properties that distinguish living organisms from inert matter; how the vast diversity of life forms was generated; how organisms reproduce themselves; how they interact both with each other and with the environment. Biology is fundamental to understanding the world we live in and plays a huge role in medicine.

Modern biological science is unravelling the mysteries of life; it is helping us to meet the challenge of illnesses such as dementia and cancer, to defend against new viruses and drug- resistant bacteria, and to protect ecosystems from climate change and other threats.
