Biology

A Bachelor of Science or BSc is an undergraduate study program that usually lasts between three and five years.  While enrolled in school, students have the opportunity to take general and specialized classes to obtain credit for graduation.

Biology is the study of all living things and how they convert and consume energy in order to survive and maintain stability. Areas of biological study are classified by organism type and complexity as well as the method of study.

Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under different governments: the UK Government is responsible for England, and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.

BSc (Hons) in Microbiology

Glasgow Caledonian University - The School of Health and Life Sciences
Campus Full time 4 years September 2018 United Kingdom Glasgow

This fascinating and varied programme can lead to careers in healthcare, food and water industries, biotechnology, the environment, pharmaceuticals and research. [+]

Microbiology is the study of organisms that are too small to be seen by the naked eye but which have a profound effect on our lives.

Microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, algae and protozoa can sometimes be harmful and cause infectious diseases. Others are beneficial and are exploited by biotechnology industries to produce food, alcoholic drinks and drugs.

Until recently many clinicians thought of the diseases caused by microorganisms as largely being solved. This assessment was too optimistic and microbiology is re-emerging as a critical science to face new challenges from organisms that no longer respond to conventional antibiotic treatment or vaccination programmes....
