Course summary

This undergraduate master’s programme gives you a broad training in the biosciences, with the option to specialise in any one of our sub-disciplines. The additional year helps you to develop your research skills during an extended laboratory or field-based project. The MSci is aimed at applicants who wish to graduate with a qualification that goes beyond the traditional Honours degree. You will learn how to write a grant proposal, develop skills in communicating science to the public, and carry out two independent research projects.

You are assessed by any combination of three assessment methods: coursework such as essays and reports completed throughout the course; practical assessments of the skills and competencies they learn on the course; and written examinations at the end of each course.

Graduates often find full-time employment in a wide range of careers. Typical employers include universities, research institutes, government agencies (e.g. SEPA, SNH), and environmental consultancies, charities including WWF & RSPB, the National Health Service, libraries and commercial enterprises in aquaculture, animal nutrition, and animal health.
