Bachelor in Biology (BSc)
Why choose BSc Biology?
Our BSc Biology degree is designed for students who find all the processes of life fascinating and wish to engage with a course that actively encourages flexibility and choice as a means by which to follow interests as they develop.
Why study BSc Biology at Middlesex?
We have developed a new suite of Biology courses that have been designed to give you the flexibility of choice in the course you study, as such there is a common first year that focuses on underpinning core subjects in biology and the different pathways. This means that should you wish to, you can change pathway at the end of the first year. Choosing BSc Biology gives you the broadest study range as you can select modules across traditional and contemporary biology disciplines.
- There are two placement opportunities as part of this course: a year in industry between the second and third year; or an internship in your third year – which can be completed in the summer or on day release. We will support you with sourcing the best placement or internship for you and make your application (more in placements tab).
- We have invested £3 million in science facilities and our labs provide the next generation of scientific instrumentation for molecular analysis post the genomic era - in line with the new focus in scientific research on protein-hunting rather than gene-hunting (more in facilities tab).
- There is an emphasis on options and flexibility, permitting you to design your own approach to the study of biology. You will be able to select modules across a range of traditional and contemporary biological disciplines, including those from other pathways as well as some from environmental science and some biomedical sciences modules.
