Course summary

Our MSci Developmental Biology course will enable you to achieve an integrated master's degree while you study for a BSc, giving you significant research experience that will be invaluable for a PhD and a career in research.In the first three years of the course, you will learn how the single cell formed at fertilisation forms an embryo and then a fully formed adult organism, covering multiple disciplines including genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology, anatomy, physiology and computer modelling.You will also learn how developmental biology is having a significant impact on our understanding of evolution and modern medicine, including the treatment of birth defects, infertility and cancer in humans. Of particular interest is the use of stem cells to engineer replacement tissues and organs, which could revolutionise medicine.In Year 4, you will undertake a major research project in one of the University's more than 200 research labs to achieve your undergraduate master's award.Our course has Advanced Accreditation from the Royal Society of Biology , which recognises academic excellence in the biosciences and highlights degrees that educate the research and development leaders and innovators of the future.
