Minimum 12 Level 2 credits in Biology.
Biology is the scientific study of life. It is a subject which explores the living world: its ecology, processes and relationships. Through this study, students gain an understanding of themselves, the world, and how organisms survive and live together. They also develop essential scientific knowledge, methods and techniques. From here, students are able to analyse scientific information effectively and discuss the wide range of implications science has on their world, including medical and environmental issues. Biology is a fascinating subject and is important for careers and in a variety of areas, from health through to sports science, environmental science and zoology.
