Scientific enquiry and research
As a bioscientist we will encourage you to adhere to the scientific method whatever your subject area, understanding how your results have been informed by the work of other scientists.
Whatever your individual subject you should expect to be confronted with the scientific questions raised by your subject and to engage in critical assessment and intellectual argument.
Problem solving and critical thinking
As a bioscientist you will be encouraged to strive to be engaged in your discipline and to be able to use critical thinking and problem solving to infer, analyse, evaluate and solve complex global issues such as
- global food security
- the environment and its protection
- the growth, development and reproduction of plants and animals
- the production and preservation of agricultural and food commodities
- food quality, health, nutrition and safety.
Digital literacy, IT and numeracy
You will be confident at selecting and analysing a range of sources of information and data (including appraising the validity and independence of this information), and apply appropriate technologies and techniques in your learning.
You will also develop professional skills in conveying this information to others in written, verbal and digital forms.
