Undergraduate introduction

Thank you for considering Biosciences at Swansea for your university education. Your choice of course and university is one of the most important decisions that you will ever make in life, and we hope that these pages will help you make the right decision.

The range of degree schemes in Biosciences have been developed to allow you to study living organisms wherever your interests lie, from aspects of molecular and cellular biology through to the biology of whole organisms and populations. Biosciences has excellent teaching facilities for molecular, physiological or ecological studies and the nearby Gower Peninsula is rich in coastal, freshwater and terrestrial habitats of outstanding quality. A marine research vessel, the R.V.Noctiluca, is used extensively for students to explore the local marine environment.

Our new Teaching Laboratory is a significantly upgraded facility to teach a higher level of transferable laboratory techniques and skills, with a capacity to hold 150 students; it includes a full range of AV facilities able to transmit to several plasma screens output from a variety of sources including microscopes, PCs, DVD/Video players and visualise/camera units.
