Specializations

Biology includes a variety of diverse disciplines. Main biology areas include animal biology (zoology), molecular biology, human biology, evolutionary biology, computational biology, but this is only a small amount of numerous biology sub-disciplines. Students interested in Biology can specialize in anatomy, biophysics, ecology and evolution, environmental biology, forensic biology, genetics, marine biology, microbiology, molecular biosciences, natural science, neurobiology, physiology, and many others. Information and tips about some of these specializations can be found on our website.

Program structure

An undergraduate Biological Sciences program usually start with an introduction year, after this year students are expected to choose their specialization. Undergraduate Biological Sciences study programs usually last from three to four academic years, it depends of the chosen institution and country. They often include a variety of internships and practical lessons, which depend on the students’ specialization, for example, students specializing in molecular biology are enrolled in lab practice, and zoology students will do field work. Some universities host joint Bachelors and Masters study programs, which allow students to get a Masters degree faster.

How to apply?

Universities do not usually request specific requirements for Biological Sciences undergraduate applicants. High GPA scores or just high scores in biology and chemistry are often required. Applicants should also be interested in biology and research work.

As all programs on our website are taught in English, all universities strongly require English proficiency, which can be proved with TOEFL, IELTS or similar language proficiency certificates.

Applicants for Masters program should hold a Bachelor or equivalent degree in Biology or related area. A strong research proposal and recommendation letters are always required.

Visa requirements depend on the chosen country and institution.

Future career

Graduates holding a Biological Sciences degree can start their career as researcher or academic stuff in variety of private and government institutions in their home country or abroad. Graduates holding a Bachelors degree in Biology have an opportunity to either continue their scientific path or choose non-scientific career in accountancy, finance, marketing or management, as Biological Sciences study programs provide students all relevant skills in these areas.

Best Universities

According to the QS Top Universities Rankings, the best university hosting Biological Sciences programs is Harvard University, USA. The list of other world leading universities hosting Biological Sciences programs includes MIT, University of Cambridge, University of Oxford, Stanford University, University of California, Berkeley, Yale University. All these universities are concentrated in USA and UK; some information about requirements for international applicants and admission process can be found on our website.
