Our four-year Ecology and Environmental Biology MBiol Honours degree is very similar in content to our BSc but includes a year of Master's-level study, which offers significant research experience. You focus on plants, animals and micro-organisms, but with a strong focus on whole organisms and their roles in the environment.
You study specialist topics related to ecology and the environment, such as:
•ecology and conservation
Like our BSc students, you learn the scientific skills required by professional biologists. You take these to a higher professional level during your fourth year, where you work alongside our research active staff to explore advanced topics in ecology.
You will also enjoy a species identification field course, as well as a week-long project-based residential field course.
