Course Summary

Biology is a diverse and ever evolving subject. Biology has helped us understand everything from the human body to the natural world and climate change.
But for everything we know, there’s so much more to discover, such as immunology and evolution.
Studying biology – either on its own or complementing the other core sciences – will help you build a strong foundational knowledge of the subject. And how it applies to so much of the world around us. The course covers everything from genetics, cell biology and the immune system through to evolution, reproduction, health and the environment.
You will get the chance to learn about biodiversity, human migration, climate change and how they are all connected. During the course you will study the following topics
* Introduction to Science
* Cell biology
* Organisation
* Infection and response
* Bioenergetics
* Homeostasis and response
* Inheritance
* Variation and Evolution
* Ecology
