BSc Ecology and Environment


“I had originally decided to undertake Zoological studies at Royal Holloway. However the first year’s mix of subjects and different research interests of the various lecturers led me down the exciting route of Ecology.

"The broad range of courses provides greater flexibility in determining the right degree path from which you can then specialise. The biological sciences courses are both stimulating and active with a great mix of both lab and field work, allowing you to gain valuable experience in key areas of science.

"The science facilities are all modern and lecturers are always willing to go that extra mile. Small classes make for a more intimate working environment, encouraging closer working relationships, which allow you to gain the most out each course.

"The research project in the third year was instrumental in helping me choose my career path. As a young scientist, this was my chance to work alongside an expert in an area of science that most interested me.

"I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Royal Holloway, so much so that I am now undertaking an MSc in Biological Research here. I will be running three experiments over the course of the year focusing on the ecology of invasive plant species, with the support of my supervisor and the expertise of the many researchers and staff at the university.

"I would highly recommend the Biological Sciences course at Royal Holloway to anyone passionate about science.”
