Course summary

Understanding genetics and molecular genetics is fundamental to all aspects of biology, modern medicine and biotechnology. Genetics affects all aspects of life. A degree in genetics opens up a whole world of job opportunities in science, industry, healthcare, forensics, and beyond. Genetics at Glasgow is top in the Russell Group for both Learning Opportunities and Student Voice Satisfaction (NSS 2017). You will undertake extensive laboratory training and acquire important transferable skills including problem solving, writing and presenting of reports, and critical analysis of written reports and data. With hands-on experience and flexible degrees, studying at the School of Life Sciences challenges you to apply the theory of the classroom in practical situations, in the lab or the field. We offer an extremely wide range of courses in Human and Animal Biology, Biomolecular Sciences, Infection and Immunity. Our aim is to offer internationally competitive degrees that meet the needs of today’s science graduates. To achieve this aim, we utilise the research and teaching strengths of the College of Medical, Veterinary & Life Sciences to provide our graduates with the skills necessary for success in any chosen career.
