What challenges does the natural world face in the wake of unprecedented human impact upon the environment? How might new research and innovations in the Life Sciences work to secure the future of sustainable societies by countering infectious disease and biodiversity loss? By choosing to pursue a degree in Life Sciences and Global Sustainable Development (GSD), you will be encountering these questions on a daily basis. You will gain invaluable lab and analytical experience whilst studying with Life Sciences, and will apply that knowledge to our current understandings of climate change, social justice, and food security. At the end of your first year, you’ll choose either a Biological Sciences or Ecology route, allowing you to study modules tailored to your interests and career aspirations.
