Course summary

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE THREE-YEAR BSc AND FOUR-YEAR MSci DEGREES?The NEW four-year MSci degree is an ADVANCED undergraduate initial degree, adding a further research-focused year to our current three-year BSc degrees. (MSci degree programmes of this type are also known as "Integrated Masters" or "Undergraduate Masters" and are financed by undergraduate student loans.) Most of the first three years will be in common with the BSc schemes, but the MSci offers specialist training in a broad range of laboratory techniques during the third year as preparation for an intensive advanced research project throughout the fourth year.The Biochemistry & Genetics Joint Honours degree offers modules from both the separate Single Honours Biochemistry and Single Honours Genetics degrees and covers a broader range of topics within the fields of biochemistry, genetics and molecular biology. It is intended to demonstrate the overlapping principles of the two disciplines and allows greater flexibility in choice of modules. The Biochemistry & Genetics (Joint Honours) course is intended for students who have studied both Chemistry and Biology to A-Level (or equivalent). This course will appeal to students who are enthusiastic about following a broad and flexible approach to understanding the molecular basis of life processes and inheritance mechanisms. This degree will:• prepare you for further study that enables you to take up research positions in industry.• prepare you for graduate training to be a doctor, dentist, or teacher, or for postgraduate or doctoral research.• provide you with transferable skills, including team working, communication, presentation, problem-solving, and analytical skills.In the final year, you will complete a research project under the guidance of a professional research scientist. By working as an independent researcher, you will develop effective project management skills and will be trained to design experiments and plan work programmes.This degree will prepare you for roles in a wide variety of professions, including the pharmaceutical industry, forensic science, and the development of new crops and agrochemicals. Our graduates have gone on to employment or further study in: university research, industrial research & development, clinical sciences, teaching, forensics, scientific management, medical sales, scientific publicity,graduate-entry medicine.SOME HIGHLIGHTS: *A progressive teaching and research environment with superb facilities for project work. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, which compared all UK research, we received the highest score for our excellent research environment and were second highest for overall research quality.*High levels of student satisfaction in the National Student Survey.*Exceptional graduate employability in these subject areas.*Located in one of the UK’s fastest growing Medical Schools teaching Graduate Entry Medicine (ranked 3rd in the UK). (Students are expected to provide their own lab coat and safety glasses for laboratory practical classes and project work. There will be an opportunity to obtain these after arrival at Swansea. A reading list will be made available before the course begins to all applicants holding offers of places.)**We guarantee that you will be made a conditional offer for a course at Swansea University. Subject requirements will apply. Please come along to our next Open Day or get in touch for further information.**
