O que eu aprenderei?

Explore the science of life by choosing topics from our broad range of modules that both interest and excite you, from the molecular to the ecological, reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of modern biology.

Lancaster University is ranked fourth in the UK for biosciences in The Guardian University Guide 2020, and fifth in the UK for biological sciences in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019.

Taught by internationally renowned academics, you will develop the skills required to tackle some of the biggest challenges facing our planet, whether it’s researching underlying scientific principles, the development of new treatments for disease or helping to protect endangered species.

Practical work doesn’t just take place in our state-of-the-art laboratories. You will also have the opportunity to participate in one of our exciting field trips which include local excursions to the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and Bowland Fells, or residential trips to Doñana National Park in south west Spain, which is home to a plethora of plant, bird and animal species, including the world’s most endangered cat, the Iberian lynx. You may even contribute to an expert-led study of the Rift Valley of Kenya, where we will evaluate the challenging balance between tropical conversation and human activity.

Our first year modules form a well-rounded introduction to the fundamental features of biology, from genetics and cell biology through to ecology and conservation biology, whilst having the opportunity to link these topics to global challenges, such as the maintenance of biodiversity and human health.

You will spend the second year of your degree working at a partner university in North America or Australasia, gaining an exciting and valuable experience of a different social and academic environment.

Returning to Lancaster for your final year, you can choose from a diverse range of optional modules to develop your knowledge in the areas that interest you most. You will also complete a dissertation where you may choose to make use of our high-quality laboratories and cutting-edge instrumentation, or undertake field-based work, such as contributing to ongoing research projects.
