BIOLOGY

Biology is a dynamic and constantly evolving science that has benefited from many recent discoveries made possible through powerful technologies such as genomic analysis, digital imagery and computer generated models. The Biology degree at Liverpool Hope takes a broad approach to studying life on Earth. You will have the opportunity to study a wide variety of organisms and different environments, as well as explore a range of biological processes and become proficient in carrying out techniques for investigating them.

At Hope, we take a dynamic and highly practical approach to teaching Biology. Your learning will concentrate on practical Biology with opportunities to study in the laboratory and during field trips, as well as visits to biological research centres. Our lecturers are enthusiastic and approachable research-active biologists whose experience and expertise facilitates research-informed teaching in contemporary aspects of evolutionary biology, animal behaviour, conservation biology, insect ecology, avian biology, bioinformatics, genomics and stable isotope ecology.

The more theoretical and technical themes in Biology are covered during interactive lectures, and then investigated during small-group tutorials and workshops. You won’t just learn biological theory, you will become actively engaged in all aspects of the subject. You will be able to carry out your own research projects, and will be encouraged to consider the wider impacts of Biology on society and everyday life.

LAW

Law shapes our society and influences every aspect of our lives. It defines our obligations and legal requirements, serves to regulate and define relationships and provides a means of redress when problems arise. To study Law is not only to study a challenging subject, but also to study the rules, principles and policies that underpin society. This degree gives you a theoretical and philosophical grounding in Law, as well as the ability to engage in its practical study and application.

Study Law with us and you will gain an understanding of the fundamental principles, theories and key ideas that underpin the law in England and Wales. You also learn about the way Public Law provides the legal framework within which government and administration functions, the structure of Law and Government under which we live, and the values of democracy, rule of law and constitutionalism that underpin that structure.

We aim to produce graduates who do not merely know or know how to, but understand why things are as they are and how they could be different. It is about gaining a deep approach to the subject, in which you try to relate ideas in one subject to those in others, to understand what you read, questioning material, making links and pursuing lines of inquiry out of interest.

Please note that taking this Combined Honours Law degree does not result in a Qualifying Law Degree (QLD). Please visit our LLB Law (Qualifying Law Degree) programme page if you want to study for a QLD. Graduates may apply to the relevant professional bodies for partial exemption from a law conversion course – the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) – if they wish to train as solicitors or barristers. This is dependent on course choice and cannot be guaranteed.
