What opportunities will this lead to?
Biology students go on to Higher Education courses, studying a variety of life science related degrees e.g. health and clinical professions such as medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, physiotherapy, pharmacy, optometry, or nursing. Many students combine A Level Biology and Chemistry. A Level Chemistry is usually required for Biology degrees. Many A Level Biology students progress to Apprenticeships and some to direct employment.
