A preparation for a wide range of occupations, including those requiring specialist knowledge in microbiology and biotechnology. Microbes are everywhere - inside our bodies, in the air we breathe, even in the food we eat. They are so small that millions can fit into the eye of a needle yet without them we couldn’t exist. 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. This course is accredited by the Royal Society of Biology. Please visit our website for full course and module details.
