Biology

Why Pembroke

Pembroke offers a wealth of interdisciplinary approaches to the understanding of biology, including ecology, evolution, behaviour and molecular biology. Our tutors are engaged in research across the breadth of the subject and are particularly focussed on exploring major over-arching questions in Biology.

Undergraduates are welcomed into the broader Life Sciences community in college that includes a large cohort of postgraduates, independent researchers and senior research associates in Biology and related biosciences.

What extra activities are on offer?

Our Fellows organise practical tutorials which take place at field sites across Oxford, for example at the Botanic Gardens and at the Museum of Natural History. We are in the process of setting up a Natural History Society which will offer backstage guided field trips to locations such as the Harcourt Arboretum at Nuneham Courtenay, the University Museum of Natural History, and Wytham Woods.

Could you be a Pembroke Biologist?

In addition to a deep fascination for the natural world, a genuine scientific curiosity, an affinity towards mathematical models complemented by an open mind and good time management skills are all key characteristics to be successful on this course.

If you are considering this course, please attend an open day where you can meet our tutors and students and find out more.  This is the best way to get a feel for whether you should make an application.  We look forward to meeting you!

Biology Course Video

The Biology course is fascinating and has the scope to allow everyone to explore their interests in as much depth as they choose.  The two principal Biology tutors at Pembroke are Nick Kruger and Rob Salguero-Gomez.  They are the main points of contact for the first year.  Both are extremely kind and supportive and give prompt and useful feedback that allows all the students to make the most of the course and their time at Pembroke.  The college has strong connections with other Oxford colleges so Pembroke students are easily able to make contact with tutors across a range of fields.
