Biology

student in laboratory

As a biology student you will study the myriad living organisms which inhabit the planet around us. This degree course begins by keeping the broadest possible perspective through the first two years. Then towards the end of your degree, whether your interests lie at the level of the biosphere, the whole organism, the cell, or the biomolecule, you can specialise to reflect the strengths and interests you develop.

Psychology

student with subject in experiment

Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behaviour. During this course you’ll investigate how and why humans (and other animals) behave in the ways they do, and learn about the mental processes driving these behaviours. As you’ll discover, Psychology is a very broad subject, covering such diverse areas as brain function, perceiving the world and even the social interactions in a football crowd.

Software Engineering

student at computer screen

Software Engineering focuses on the art of designing and building complex software systems. A particular challenge is that such systems are often large – too large for a single person to develop on their own. You’ll study techniques and practice for real-world software design and associated programming technologies
