Biological Science

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.” – Charles Darwin, Naturalist/Geologist/Biologist


Biological Science

Biological Science is the study and characterisation of living organisms and the investigation of the science behind living things; in other words the study of life. This field of study is suitable for students with a keen interest in learning and understanding living organisms. The range of disciplines in Biological Science ranges from biochemistry, biomedicine, cell biology, conservation, ecology, genetics, microbiology, pathobiology and physiology. The distinctive attribute of studying Biological Science is its flexibility as students are offered an amazing prospect to pick from a wide scope of portfolio to develop a distinctive degree which reflects their passion and interest. The diverse biology topics include Animal Biology, Molecular Biology, Human Biology, Evolutionary Biology and Computational Biology.

With Biological Science being a dynamic subject, career options for graduates are certainly not limited. Within the science industry, the demand for biology graduates comprise of Agriculture, Biotechnology, Ecology, Environmental Conservation, Food Science, Genetics, Horticulture, Marine Biology, Neurobiology, and Wildlife Documentary Production. Graduates interested to work in hospitals or research often pursue a career as Immunologists, Microbiologists, Researchers, Scientific Equipment Sales, Wildlife Consultants, and even Teachers. On the other hand, graduates may find ways to apply their transferrable skill set to roles in non-scientific field such as Accountancy, Finance, Management, Marketing or even Sales sectors. However it must be noted, career options as a graduate in the field of Biological Science are often dependent on the level of qualification students attained. Most sought-after careers do require higher levels of academic study. As such, graduates often continue to pursue further education to earn their Masters or PhD.
