A preparation for a wide range of occupations, including those requiring specialist knowledge in microbiology and biotechnology.

Through specialist modules in medical, food and environmental biotechnology, you'll explore how we exploit the diversity of microorganisms in the production of drugs and food and the decontamination of polluted environments. This will prepare you for employment in a wide range of occupations, including those requiring specialist knowledge in microbiology and biotechnology.
