Life Sciences courses in the UK
Introduction to Life Sciences
Life sciences covers a very wide range of subjects, with biology chief among them. This category also includes zoology, botany, bio-engineering and neuroscience. Many universities offer a more general life sciences degree which allows for specialisation later in the course rather than separate degrees for each topic, as they often have considerable overlap.
The breadth of the subject also means that it is applicable to many different fields. Life science graduates and research can be found in medicine, agriculture, food, law and psychology. Life science graduates have the ability to work in many different environments, in a team or alone, and are skilled in problem solving and analytical thinking.
