Our Biological Sciences MSci explores biological systems at molecular, cell, tissue and whole organism levels. Through practical teaching driven by research, you will learn to apply scientific knowledge and investigative skills to help find solutions to environmental and societal issues. This integrated degree provides extra in-depth study at masters level, enabling you to develop advanced research skills and specialise in subjects that interest you most. You will learn with a course team who are internationally recognised experts in their field, with research strengths in areas such as zoonotic disease, human physiology, diabetes, biomedical devices and conservation. You will undertake an individual research project and gain practical experience through laboratory classes and fieldwork, allowing you to further develop your skills. Optional field trips have included destinations such as South Africa and Portugal. You’ll also benefit from access to our specialist facilities, which include an Image Analysis Unit and purpose-built ecology, microbiology, molecular biology and tissue culture labs, as well as the option to undertake a placement year.
