Great course if you are interested in environmental, marine or mico biology. If you are more interested in human biology then there might not be much of interest to you. read more

I'm just finishing first year but I've found Biology really exciting and engaging so far. There are so many places Biology can take you and it's amazing to hear the excitement in the lecturers voices when they talk about their own research. Would recommend (as a student who took Bio, Geog and Psych at A level). The Chemistry is quite hard in the beginning but you have the option to choose whichever topics you want next year, so I chose ones with less Chem :) read more

Good lecturers. Course content is interesting. I don't see my tutor enough though. I wish it was more frequent. At the moment, with meetings being so irregular, having a tutor seems pointless, when it shouldn't be. read more

Teachers are substandard, not at all enthusiastic and refuse to give one to one help as they have "too many students". Teachers at college had more students and still managed to have office hours to sit and go through topics. Where they get £9000 a year from I don't know. read more
