What you will study in the Biological science-From Genes to Species course at The Open University UK
Biology encompasses all aspects of the study of living things from their ecology and behaviour, physiology and anatomy, through to their cell biology and molecular composition.
You will learn about biological processes operating at different levels - molecular, cellular, organismal and species – and explore key concepts and research methodologies in these areas. The module is presented as a series of eight topics, alongside which is a closely-related Research Skills strand.
You will have a tutor who will help you with your studies and mark and comment on your written work, and whom you can ask for advice and guidance. Tuition will be delivered online and will include tutorials delivered specifically to your tutor group as well as sessions available to all students studying the module. The former will be delivered by your allocated tutor whereas the latter will be delivered by a series of tutors and other academics.
This programme may require students to demonstrate proficiency in English.
