About the subject Biology

Biology is the natural science that studies life and living organisms, including their physical structure, chemical processes, molecular interactions, physiological mechanisms, development, and evolution.

Biology can be a challenging subject because it involves a lot of unfamiliar concepts (some of which are difficult) and requires mastering an unfamiliar vocabulary (true of any science). It is less maths intensive than chemistry or physics.

Why is Biology important to study?

As a field of science, biology helps us understand the living world and the ways its many species, including humans, function, evolve and interact. Advances in medicine, agriculture, biotechnology, and many other areas of biology have brought improvements in the quality of life.

Science teachers, including those specialising in biology, are much in demand and as science, technology, engineering, and maths careers continue to grow, there’s a need for capable, hard-working teachers.

Biology is a fundamental subject for careers in all areas of the science and health sectors but there are many other industries you can take with this degree. Jobs directly related to a biology degree include:

  • Biotechnologist
  • Higher education lecturer
  • Marine biologist
  • Microbiologist
  • Nanotechnologist
  • Nature conservation officer
  • Pharmacologist
  • Research scientist (life sciences)
  • Scientific laboratory technician

What are the five main branches of Biology?

Biology encompasses many diverse fields, including botany, conservation, ecology, evolution, genetics, marine biology, medicine, microbiology, molecular biology, physiology and zoology. However, the main five branches are:

  • Chemistry The study of the properties of matter and how matter changes.
  • Physics The study of matter and energy and the interactions between the two through forces and motion.
  • Geology The study of the structure of the earth.
  • Astronomy The study of the universe.
  • Biology The study of life.

How much do Biology courses cost?

Many people with biology degrees become doctors. In fact, biology degrees are the No. 1 bachelor’s degree that aspiring doctors earn before starting medical school; this type of degree provides a good foundation for students interested in medicine, so it is a good long-term investment.

Most courses are three to five years duration and you are looking at the usual annual university fee per year, but these may vary depending on which institution you choose.

Universities that offer Biology courses include:

  • University of St Andrews
  • University of Oxford
  • University of Dundee
  • University of Cambridge
  • University of York
  • University of Portsmouth
  • University of Durham
  • University of Warwick
  • University of Bradford
