So what is Biology? Put simply, it is the study of life and all the wonder that surrounds it. Through a variety of teaching methods such as taught lessons, peer teaching, group work and a range of activities, your understanding of the implications of modern Biology will be developed along with the importance of understanding environmental, ethical, and social issues and their consequences.
During the course you will have the opportunity to take part in a number of extra-curricular activities such as: attending careers in health events at the Heath Hospital; attending Wales Gene Park conferences and workshops; and being invited to talks by expert guest speakers in conjunction with the Darwin Centre.
Through a number of practical activities including, genetic engineering, food testing, heart and kidney dissection, chromatography, respiration in insects and plants and bacterial experiments, we aim to give our students the confidence and knowledge to progress into their chosen field.
