What skills do you need for a Biology course?

Well-Read

The world of biology is constantly evolving every single day right before our very eyes. Just like medicine, you will need to keep up-to-date with the latest developments in Biology, no matter what field you go into.

Versatile

While biology may seem like a narrow discipline, the opportunities are vast ranging from biotechnologist, to a forensic biologist and more! Versatile people will love this field as it will allow them to have numerous options upon graduation.

Passionate

Biology as a subject in university is detailed. The biology you studied in school will seem very little compared to what’s in store. Biologists need to be passionate about the subject if they hope to do well, both at university and once they start their careers.
