Biology is the study of living organisms. We look at the cells, tissues, organs and whole organisms as well as studying the environments that they live in. You will gain an insight into this fascinating world and will take part in a wide variety of practical experiments, many of which you will plan yourself. Biology has played a huge role in many of the developments we see today including medicine & health, food & agriculture, biotechnology and has given us an understanding of our own bodies and brains and what makes us human.
