Choosing a University

Thinking of studying biology at University? Don’t know where to start? Take a look at some of these Universities.

They all have a strong research programme in biology, meaning that the people who teach you will be actively involved in discovering new scientific knowledge. This might be ‘applied’ research, tackling problems such as the disease that’s wiping out the world’s banana supply. Or it might be ‘basic’ or ‘fundamental’ research, trying to understand underlying scientific questions such as how cells work.

You may be able to join a research team yourself as part of your studies, particularly in your final year.
