Optional modules cover specialist areas such as photosynthesis, global warming and vegetation modelling, climate change and pollution impacts on plant communities. You'll draw on a variety of techniques to investigate molecular biology, genetics, biotechnology, plant-pathogen and plant-symbiont interactions, carnivorous and parasitic plants, conservation and biodiversity.
Our research spans the globe, from tropical rainforests to subarctic tundra. There are optional field courses available in the Peak District National Park (UK), Anglesey (UK), Ireland, Arctic Sweden, the Mediterranean, Tanzania, and tropical rainforest in Malaysian Borneo.
If you want to study plant sciences, but don't meet the entry requirements to go straight into the first year, our Biosciences with a Foundation Year could be for you. After successfully completing the one-year programme, you'll progress onto the first year of your chosen degree.
