Course summary

Overview

A flexible course that can be customised to fit your bioscience interests.

As well as developing essential core skills and competencies for the bioscience researcher, you can choose from the full range of optional modules on offer to select the combination of topics that most interest you. You’ll study exciting, contemporary topics in a faculty ranked 6th in the UK for its research impact (REF 2014) and be introduced to the cutting-edge techniques being used to advance scientific discovery.

Choose your independent advanced research project from a wide list of topics, which are designed to offer you an immersive experience in the research laboratory, as well as the opportunity to contribute to science in an area you are passionate about.

The strong research element of MSc bioscience, along with the specialist and fundamental skills you’ll develop, will prepare you for a range of careers.
