Biology is the study of all living things, from the tiniest organisms to the largest lifeforms. You will learn how nature and the human body work, and how different forms of life eat, make energy and reproduce. You will also find out how Biology is helping to find solutions to world problems.

There are many career opportunities connected with biology, including medicine, nursing, dentistry, physiotherapy, food science, sport science, pharmacology and beauty therapy.

Biology is a hands-on that develops your skills of scientific inquiry, and analytical thinking, along with knowledge and understanding, by undertaking practical activities in the classroom/local environment. You will research issues and communicate information related to their findings, which will develop your skills of scientific literacy.

The course comprises three areas of study.

This course allows you to develop a deeper understanding of the underlying themes of biology: evolution and adaption; structure and function; genotype and niche. Within each of the units, the scale of topics ranges from molecular through to whole organism and beyond. In all units you will develop analytical thinking and problem solving skills in context of each topic.

The course consists of three compulsory units and the assessment unit.

The Advanced Higher Biology Course is based on integrative ideas and unifying principles
of modern biological science. It covers key aspects of life science at the molecular scale
and extends to aspects of the biology of whole organisms that are among the major
driving forces of evolution. In addition, the Advanced Higher Biology Course aims to
develop a sound theoretical understanding and practical experience of experimental
investigative work in biological science.
