The Biology MSci degree is a 4 year integrated Masters course allowing students to undertake the same taught modules as those available on the 3 year BSc variant of the course. It has the added benefit of a fourth year consisting of Masters level taught modules and an extended research project. Students on the course will, therefore, obtain additional practical skills that will stand them in particularly good stead if they want to apply for subsequent research-based careers.
