13 Biology

As to all levels of Biology - it is a fascinating subject which is currently (and will continue to be) in a major growth phase as new areas of research open up to keen New Zealand scientists. Students may be interested in jobs such as they have on CSI or perhaps working on protection of endemic species in NZ or evolving viruses. Medical research will continue to require new minds as well as animal behaviour specialists.
We hope that you see the benefit in being a scientist OR an informed citizen as our lives are so very much affected by biology and biological issues.
