Our students come from many educational backgrounds. We value this diversity and understand the importance of getting to know students as individuals. Small-group classes in tutorials, laboratory and fieldtrips are at the heart of our teaching and our students join active research groups for their final-year research project.
Our degrees courses include a range of options that enable you to tailor your degree to reflect your interests and career choices.
For specific information on our degree courses please refer to the Biology and Ecology and environment tabs above.
Our BSc in Biology will equip you with a wide range of knowledge and skills relevant to modern biological sciences.
Biology at Sussex includes a broad range of modules in the first two years of study giving students broad exposure to a range of biological sciences and to a range of academics at the forefront of their field. This equips students with a wealth of knowledge and experience to pursue their own personal interests and career choices.
Here at Sussex, the course includes much practical training which equips students with the key skills required to conduct their own research projects, examples of which include xyz
To find out more details about what, and how, you will learn please download our Biology 2013 Leaflet [PDF 118.09KB] or watch the video below where Elizabeth Ajiyemi talks about her BSc in Biology:
Ecology and Environment is a degree that is suitable for people who are curious and care about the natural world.
Our aim with the degree is to train individuals to manage and provide solutions to the current issues fundamental to ecology and the environment.
Ecology is an interdisciplinary subject as it includes biology and geography which means that as a student you will be taught by our academics from both the School of Life Sciences and the School of Global Studies thus benefiting from the different perspectives these two Schools have to offer.
We have produced a number of short videos which give you valuable insight into our BSc Ecology and Environment and why Sussex is a great place to study.
