Facilities

School of Biological and Environmental Sciences

Excellent facilities for all subject areas

New state-of-the-art laboratories and excellent teaching spaces means we offer students and researchers world-class facilities.

We have a whole range of specialist facilities depending on your area of study.

Our forensics students and staff can use:

  • Geophysics equipment for exploring burial contexts
  • An osteology lab with anthropometric instruments, casting devices, digital X-ray and 3D laser scanning equipment

Geography students are learning on the instrumentation that professionals use with the latest geographic information systems (GIS) software and state-of-the-art analytical equipment.

The James Parsons building is where you’ll find our biological sciences, geography, animal behaviour and zoology students and researchers at work in our labs and teaching areas. They’ll also be collecting data and observing the natural world out in the field.

Basic scientific practices picked up in practical assessments gave me a head start in my training. I never knew learning how to stain tissue slides and use a Neubauer chamber to count cells would come in so useful!
