Home to BSc Biology and BSc Ecology and Environment.
We are an enthusiastic and dynamic group of researchers, working at the cutting edge of issues of fundamental importance to life on earth. Our Biology and Ecology students benefit from the knowledge and research expertise of the group, the friendliness and approachability of our academics and the worldwide reputation of the department. Being situated next to a national park, close to Brighton and the coast provides the perfect location to study degrees in Biology and in Ecology and Environment.
In the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE 2008), 80 per cent of our biology research was rated as recognised internationally or higher, and over one-third rated as internationally excellent or higher.
In addition, in the latest National Student Survey, 92 per cent of Sussex Biology students - which includes those studying Ecology and Environment - said they were satisfied with the teaching on their course (NSS 2012).
