Biological Sciences

Research areas: some research is based around specific taxonomic groups (including: birds, insects and microbes) but much of the research is based on much broader biological and ecological concepts such as ecology and environment; biology of taxonomic groups; microbiology; pedagogic research; citizen science and public engagement.

Entry requirements

An Honours degree of Upper 2nd Class or above from a UK university, or an equivalent qualification, is normally required in a subject area relevant to the chosen research topic; in exceptional circumstances, the University considers applications from non-graduates with experience of undertaking research or graduates who wish to work in a new subject area; registration is usually for MPhil by research with the possibility of transfer to PhD; candidates with a Master's degree in a relevant subject that contains appropriate research methods training may be able to register for PhD directly.
