UG extended MSci degree in Biological Sciences. Biological Sciences encompasses many aspects of the biosciences, from molecules to ecosystems and includes exploration of: • Biological diversity, systematics and conservation • Cell and tissue structure, function and physiology • Ecology and behaviour • Form and function of microorganisms, protists, fungi, plants and animals • Genetics and mechanisms and pathways of evolution The MSi Biological Sciences enables students to gain an understanding of structure, function, and interactions of microorganisms, protists, fungi, plants and animals. Concepts and theories from the molecular and cellular levels through to whole-organism and ecosystems are also taught. Students will gain practical laboratory- and field-based skills to help them investigate and manipulate biological material including relevant physical, chemical and biological measurements and their application in a laboratory, field, and research project setting. During the third year research project module students will have access to cutting-edge research facilities across the molecular and ecological disciplines. Additional skills achieved include: Collation, quantitative analysis and interpretation of experimental data, including problem-solving; communication and application of knowledge; the use of computers for data management and presentations, and the development of intellectual, personal and team skills for employment and further study. In the final year of the MSci Biological Sciences, students will complete a research project where they will learn Masters level research skills and the application of their degree in a research intensive environment.
