School of Biological Sciences


The School of Biological Sciences is a vibrant community where research and learning can be fascinating and fun. Our outlook on Biology spans all types of organisms, all scales of biological systems - from molecules to ecosystems - and all research perspectives - from energetics to evolution.

At undergraduate level, we offer a diverse range of courses from which students mix-n-match to suit their needs and interests within our broad Biology and Biochemistry majors. And the diversity continues at postgraduate level, where students choose amongst our nine specialist subject majors.

Across the range of biological disciplines, there are research opportunities that use gene technologies, electron microscopes and satellite images, and that can take you to field stations throughout New Zealand's South Island, to Antarctica or even the other side of the world.
