This course aims to reinforce and review some of the basic biological concepts taught at A level Biology in the context of cutting edge research. It also aims to introduce some new university-level material and give a flavour of studying Biosciences at York.

We'll focus on bugs, brains and beasts and at the same time we'll explore why York is such a unique place to study.

Assessments (and subsequent certificates) are optional and carry a fee, with the exception of people with a York username for whom they are free.
