This course is open for Clearing applications. Our BSc Hons Biology degree offers the chance to gain a solid grounding in the biological sciences — with the flexibility to develop your own interests and learn about the areas and aspects of biological sciences that match your career ambitions.
For instance, the lecturers in my comparative physiology unit encouraged us to take our learning further by attending the Evolution Research Day, which gave us more practical physiology examples. Our biology degree gives you a thorough grounding in all aspects of biological sciences, allowing you to develop your own interests and tailor your learning to your career aspirations.
Taught by research-active academics, the course has been deed to give a wide-ranging experience for students with real-world relevance. A wide range of field trips and laboratory work has been integrated into the course, allowing students to practice and reflect on their applied knowledge and analytical skills.
The course begins by laying the foundations in the study of biological molecules and how these function at a cellular level as well as in microorganisms. You will also explore how these topics influence systems biology and study anatomy, physiology, ecology, diversity and biodiversity monitoring.
In your second and final years you can specialise by studying molecular and wet-bench subjects such as molecular biology, biotechnology, microbiology, genetics and genomics, infectious disease and health, forensic DNA profiling; or by studying systems biology subjects such as sex and survival, brain and behaviour, species interactions, the social life of animals, animal behaviour and conservation, tropical field course, vertebrate evolution.
You can also study combinations of these different areas for a more general biology degree experience. Alternatively, you have the option of spending your third year working on a placement in industry or at a relevant non-governmental organisation NGObefore returning to Manchester for the final year of your course. Please note that field trips, study abroad and placement years will be subject to national and international travel restrictions. Year 1 aims to provide you with a thorough grounding in all aspects of biology.
Typical areas of study may include biomolecules cells and micro-organisms, genetics, ecology, physiology and anatomy and diversity. Please note that the following list of units is indicative and may be subject to change. This unit will introduce students to the principles and practical applications of biodiversity monitoring. Phone fun date chat sex Manchester introduction to the principles of plant and animal physiology at the systems level with appropriate links to anatomy, cell biology, pathology, and behaviour.
This unit provides an introduction to principles, concepts and techniques in the study of biochemistry, molecular biology and cell biology. Key themes are biological molecules and cell structure and function. This unit is an introduction to the variety of life on Earth, exploring plant and animal diversity from both a functional and a systematic perspective.

This unit looks at how science is performed. Using relevant examples, students will examine how we ask questions, and gather data to answer them and communicate our findings. This unit introduces the diversity of microbial life, drawing examples from aquatic, terrestrial, food and medical microbiology, emphasising microbial friends and foes. Students are expected to comply with the Department's codes of conduct and behaviour on field courses, placements and exchanges. Placements and study exchange opportunities are dependent on passing each stage at the first opportunity and being of good standing.
The four-year placement route gives you the opportunity to spend your third year on a placement with a relevant employer, such as a conservation or environmental body, zoo or animal welfare organisation, or with local government or a molecular diagnostics company. The four-year study abroad route gives you the opportunity to study overseas during your third year in Europe, North America or Australasia. Year 2 offers you a range of units to suit your needs and career aspirations.
Typical areas of study may include professional skills, microbiology, brain and behaviour, conservation biology, species interactions, molecular biology, biotechnology and biochemistry. This unit will introduce students to the key principles that underpin many nucleic acid molecular methodologies, with a strong emphasis on the applications and context of these techniques. This unit will explore the ecology and evolution of species interactions.
Key topics will include pollination, manipulation of reproduction, impacts of diseases and defence responses. This unit introduces students to the professional skills involved with being a Biologist. It develops knowledge of key methodologies, skills and experiences needed for professional development.
The unit will explore the anatomical, developmental, physiological, ecological and behavioural characteristics and lifecycles of major invertebrate phyla and review their importance to ecosystem function and as parasites and vectors of disease. This unit will introduce students to applied ecological techniques and behavioural data collection. Students will de and deliver a research project Phone fun date chat sex Manchester a residential field course in either Poland, Tanzania or at the Manchester Met field station in Ecuador.
The unit will embrace the principles of conservation biology, namely, biodiversity, conservation genetics, habitat disturbance and species extinction using examples of research-based conservation interventions. This unit covers the utilisation and genetic modification of organisms for biotechnology: including the production of food and drink; bioremediation and pollution control; biofuels; medical biotechnology. The unit will cover the principles of evolution, and explore the concept of behavioural traits as adaptations to an individual's environment.
This unit will introduce students to terrestrial ecology with a focus on the interactions between plants and soils and their mediation by soil micro-organisms. The unit content includes microbial physiology, nutrition, microbial genetics and microbial taxonomy of archaea, bacteria, fungi, viruses and algae, with particular reference to recent developments.
This unit will involve the processing of biological evidence from collection, to identification of particular bodily fluids, through to DNA profiling and individualisation.Text Game -- From Number To Date Step By Step
This unit covers the mechanisms and development of behaviour, or how brain and body combine to produce behaviour. The unit consists of a series of lectures, two practical sessions and tutorials.
This unit will allow students to extend their knowledge of animal welfare, human-animal interactions and how these link to non-human animal and human health. If you opt for the four-year placement route, Year 3 will be spent on placement. If you opt for the four-year study abroad route, you will spend your third year studying in either Europe, North America or Australasia.
In your final year, you will undertake a final year biology project and select areas of study from a range of options.
Students will plan and conduct data collection, and analyse this data for a research project in Biology under the supervision of an academic member of staff. You will examine the physiological, behavioural, ecological and distributional changes in species that result from global change, and consider community and ecosystem consequences of these. Within the context of evolutionary genetics, this unit will encompass topics in evolutionary biology, population genetics and the genetic basis of biological problems in conservation.
This unit will explore contemporary issues in coastal ecology, conservation and restoration, and examine the unique organisms that live where the land meets the sea.
