Course Summary

This course is for biosciences graduates looking to open up a route into industry, and for practising professionals seeking to widen their experience and qualifications, and extend their knowledge of applied molecular biology/bioinformatics. It provides a sound understanding of the subject’s key principles, as well as how these can be effectively applied to a wide range of industrial and environmental applications. You will benefit from working with excellent technology and research equipment in our state-of-the-art laboratories, and you also receive a thorough grounding in the necessary computing skills needed to access important online databases, such as the human genome. You will be challenged to look to the frontiers of (and even beyond) current thinking in the subject, and to be aware of how your studies impact on your future career/professional role. To complement this, you will gain essential intellectual and transferable skills such as independent planning, hypothesis formulation and testing, and the importance of originality.

Career path

Career paths vary from technical to managerial in the industrial, educational, health and research sectors - typically, you will be heading for a role in the areas of general molecular biology, biochemical science, medical science and biotechnology (including pharmaceuticals).
You may prefer to go into postgraduate research at an academic or private sector institution, or embark on a science teaching career.

Students will also achieve PgCert, PgDip and University Statement of Credit University Statement of Credit awards in this course.
