O que se aprende nesse curso?
This course explores areas of science that are among the most rapidly advancing and exciting, from medical biology, which is concerned with a detailed understanding of the human body in health and disease, to microbiology, the study of those life forms that are essentially unicellular and mostly too small to see with the naked eye.
In Year 1 this degree will provide you with a broad grounding in biological science. Years 2 & 3 allow you to choose one of two possible degree pathways:
- Medical Biology and Cell & Molecular Biology
- Medical Biology and Microbiology
The first year core modules, which include Human Anatomy and Microbiology develop essential study skills and laboratory experience, whilst studying a range of biology topics. In your second and third years, you will take a range of core modules, as well as others that you can select from a list of designated modules. During your final year, you will carry out your own laboratory-based research project.
Year one core modules
