In the first year you’ll build a strong scientific understanding of biochemistry, genetics, physiology and ecology, mastering new practical skills along the way with advanced lab work.
After every lesson, I felt confident that I understood all of the material we covered that day.
My daughter felt her knowledge of chemistry was not secure enough in relation to the mathematical elements. Zara tutored Kate for the summer term of year 12 and really helped her improve her exam technique in chemistry OCR for A-level.
Go global and study abroad as part of your degree - apply for our Biology BSc with a Year Abroad.
Queen Mary has links with universities in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia (partnerships vary for each degree programme).
For optional fieldwork, you will have to contribute up to £150, plus the cost of your flight (based on costs for 2017/18). Having a biology degree from a Russell Group university will help my application stand out to future employers.
A QMUL qualification equips you with a well-rounded biological education and transferable skills that will open doors to many career paths.
Entirely based on what she achieved for us I cannot recommend Zara enough.
Zara was very encouraging throughout our sessions and her notes were alway thorough, which helped when reviewing content from both the AS and A2 specification.
Exams are ongoing so we don`t know the results ,but Zara has been amazing : my daughter found chemistry so hard , especially the maths , and interpreting the questions was a real problem, but Zara has given her really well -explained techniques to help her understand what to look for and how to understand what she is being asked : this was something we just hadn`t been able to help her with.
My daughter is so much happier now , and whatever the result will carry this knowledge forward to university.
