Academic IELTS for UKVI 5.0, with minimum 5.0 in writing*.
Academic: Good high school graduation grades or equivalent
You will learn about cell structure and function, as well as physiological processes in animals. Other areas of study include plant biology, genetics and ecology. Mathematic techniques are part of the course, and you will apply your understanding to real-life situations.
What will I study?
You will study a combination of core modules designed to boost your English language and universitylevel study skills, along with subjectspecific modules. You will gain an understanding of basic cell structure and function by looking at the flow of information
through the cell and the basic principles of metabolism. You will learn about the organisation and integration of physiological
processes in animals, placing particular emphasis on mammalian, especially human physiology. Plant biology, genetics and ecology
will also be explored. You will study chemical formulae, equations and moles, learning about equilibria, kinetics, entropy, inorganic and
organic chemistry. You will develop your understanding of mathematical terms and techniques and apply these to solving problems relating to real-life situations.
