Biology influences our everyday lives, and is at the forefront of social change, for example, the use of genetically-modified organisms, humanityâs effect on the environment, and sustainable energy and food production. Studying Biology, you investigate the structures and functions of living organisms together with how they interact with other systems around them.. The degree programme provides a broad survey of the various biological disciplines, including anthropology, biochemistry, cell and molecular biology, evolution, genetics, infection and immunity, microbiology, and the physiology of animals and plants. Opportunities are available to work in one of our research labs during the summer vacation after your second year. These optional projects offer an ideal opportunity to gain further hands-on research experience. Our Biology degree is accredited by the Royal Society of Biology.

Canterbury is a great place for students, with loads of us about. There are a huge range of students from all over the world here, and everyone is really welcoming and friendly. The streets are beautiful, there are loads of great shops and cafes in town. Club Chemistry and Chill are where the majority of students go, but I found a lot of evenings went by nicely in The Penny Theatre, which has nice cheap pints and food. The professors are amazing, and the support services are constant and very helpful, and I felt completely supported academically.
I have loved my 3 years at Kent. It really does feel like a family. The campus is amazing (especially if you like rabbits), there is lots of places to relax, study or socialise. The facility's are all in great condition and well thought out. Plenty of opportunity to get involved in extra things such as clubs, work, volunteering etc. Like any family it has its problems (mainly communication) but this is something they seem to be working on and the enthusiastic caring lecturers make up for it.
