Program overview

In Semesters 1-4, you’ll study the following core module options: Cell Biology; Physiology; Genes and Evolution; Ecology; and Biodiversity. In addition, you’ll study practical skills in the Biological and Environmental Sciences and Quantitative Techniques. You’ll also take additional modules in other disciplines of your choice, usually from modules offered in Biological or Environmental Sciences or Aquatic Sciences. Semesters 5-6 include modules in: Animal Physiology; Microbiology; and Animal Cell Biology. You’ll also select additional modules such as: Advanced Marine Biology, Applied Immunology, Behavioural Ecology, Plant Ecology and Applied Biological Sciences Placement. In Semesters 7-8, you’ll work on an independent research project and a number of advanced modules from a range of options, which currently include: Molecular Techniques, Omics and Systems Biology, Molecular Evolution and Phylogenetics, Cell Birth, Life and Death, Genetic Engineering, Immunology and Disease, and Proteomics. Research project topics will be offered to you that reflect the active research interests of academic staff but you’re also supported in developing your own ideas. Some students have organised projects with other research organisations, usually when they have already established a relationship with the organisation during vacation work.
