BSc (Hons) Biology

Catriona's Story

Studying Biology at the University of Stirling has been one of the best decisions I have made; the courses are interesting and well thought out, the staff are very approachable, and I feel fully prepared for graduate employment. The teaching staff are fantastic and go out of their way to help you; for example, there are opportunities for work placements during the summer months. The course itself provides a great balance between the different areas of biology, with plenty of practical classes both in the lab and field.

One of the main benefits for me for studying at Stirling was the course flexibility, as I have changed my degree twice. This is such a great benefit to have, especially if you are not sure exactly what route you want to take your degree. There are also great study abroad opportunities; one of the highlights of my degree was spending a year at Flinders University in Adelaide, Australia. I cannot recommend studying at Stirling enough, my time here has been amazing!
