Course summary

How will Covid-19 affect this course?

This course will start online and may then continue on campus depending on the latest coronavirus policies.

Develop the knowledge and skills to play a vital role as a practical scientist and interpreter of modern bioscience.

Gain a broad range of skills and knowledge by learning about life on all scales, from the molecular to global ecosystems. You’ll study different topics in modern biosciences, as well as having the option to focus on some specific areas.

The Master of Biology (MBiol) provides you with the same core skills and knowledge as the BSc but with a greater exposure to research and advanced practical techniques.

Teaching

Specialist teaching is influenced by the expertise of academics in the Department and includes areas such as cell biology, biodiversity and ecology, evolutionary biology, genomics, plant science, microbiology and immunology, neuroscience, developmental biology and stem cells, structural molecular biology, cancer genetics and biotechnology.

Careers

You'll develop the knowledge and skills needed to work in a variety of fields, such as pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, education, environment, or roles in agricultural, medical and chemical laboratories. Many of our graduates also choose to go on to postgraduate study in preparation for academic or industry-based research careers.

Studying a biosciences degree requires you to apply a broad skill set to the understanding of complex processes. This skill set is also useful in a range of other careers, such as business, management and science teaching.

Placement

You may gain a competitive edge in the graduate job market by taking a placement year. You’ll work full-time in a role that might be undertaken by a graduate, where you’ll broaden your experience and transferable skills.

There are a wide range of opportunities, from working in marketing for a pharmaceutical company to a lab-based role at a research institute. We have links with some of industry's leading companies. Recent employers include Lilly, Field Studies Council, Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, Oxford Gene Technology, AstraZeneca, Genesys and LifeArc.
