The course reflects the UK’s burgeoning life science industry and the growing demand for highly skilled scientific personnel. The program develops knowledge and critical understanding of the well-established principles in this field while linking with employers to ensure that skills remain current and relevant to industry. Upon successful completion, graduating students will be able to embark on scientific careers in local and central government, the food and pharmaceutical industries, forensic or laboratory sciences.
