The School of Biology is located on the main University Park campus, with some members of staff based in the adjacent Queen's Medical Centre. It is one of the leading Biology Schools in the UK, recognised for excellence in both teaching and research. Many of the staff are members of the Centre for Genetics and Genomics, and research in genetics remains an important area of strength in the School.
In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) 90% of the School’s research was considered to be at the “Internationally Competitive” level or above, and 50% was judged to be in the “Internationally Excellent” and “World Leading” categories. For the University of Nottingham as a whole, the 2008 RAE was also very positive, with the University rising to rank 7th in the most widely quoted (Research Fortnight) league table of RAE outcomes for UK universities.
These are exciting times in many areas of Biology, and we offer a wide range of opportunities for studying the latest developments in the subject at different levels. Our undergraduate programme consists of 3 year BSc or 4 year MSci courses in five degree subjects: Biology , Biochemistry and Genetics , Genetics , Human Genetics and Zoology. Teaching in the school is delivered by academics who are passionate about biology. Students coming to the School of Biology have the opportunity to study all aspects of modern biology from model organisms to humans, from molecules to cells, and from the perspective of the development, ecology and behaviour of whole organisms.
