The biological sciences can be defined as the study of living things. In general, it covers how all living things from the smallest microorganisms to larger plants and animals live and interact with each other. It tends to focus on the structure, function, growth, evolution, distribution and taxonomy of living things. Study in the area of biological sciences is available in the UK at both the bachelor and master’s level. One of the beauties of pursing this course in the UK is to develop a more specific and personalized subject focus than you would normally be able to do in Latin America. Studying your degree in the UK will also give you a valuable and unique perspective from your peers. Several of our partner universities also offer work experience with certain companies within their degrees to set you apart and help you gain more experience in your chosen field. At the postgraduate level a major in the biological sciences can cover a host of specialities even if your undergraduate degree did not have the same specialization.
