What opportunities could this subject lead to? Complementary Subjects Students who may wish to pursue a biological subject at university will find that chemistry is usually a requirement. Geography is useful for environmental and ecology-related courses. Physics, maths, ICT/computing, psychology and food are also complimentary. None of these subjects is essential however and some students choose biology as their only science subject. In addition to general degree courses in the biological sciences you could apply for more specific subjects such as biochemistry, microbiology, genetics or physiology. Biology is desirable for medicine and veterinary science. It can also be combined with other disciplines such as a language or business studies. An interest in biology can lead to an extensive range of different careers. These include careers in medicine and healthcare, education, the environment, food and drink, biotechnology and agriculture. For further details, visit the Institute of Biology website www.job.org
