Our MBiol Biology degree combines Bachelor’s-level modules with study leading to a Master’s degree. This highly practical course will give you a comprehensive, multidisciplinary understanding of biology from the molecular to the global level. You will carry out two research projects, developing the analytical and problem-solving skills prospective employers are looking for. The course has an international focus, enabling you to learn from global experts and undertake field trips and work placements abroad. Employment opportunities include industrial and medical research or work as a consultant in areas such as biomedical science, biotechnology or agribusiness. You could also follow this course with a PhD.
All degree courses are made up of modules – individual units of study on different topics. Some modules are compulsory; others can be chosen from a list of options. Our website has full details of your degree structures, module content, and how each module is assessed. The direct link to this course on our website, can be found at the bottom of this page.
