Course summary


The MSc Molecular Bioscience has two distinct and separate pathways of study allowing you to focus on Molecular Medicine or Genetics and Genomic. You can elect to take study topics in your chosen area of interest and it allows you to design your Master’s degree to meet your career aspirations.

Course Details

MSc Molecular Bioscience with specific pathways in Genetics and Genomics or Molecular Medicine.

The programme supports you to develop your knowledge and understanding of key aspects of your chosen pathway and is aimed at individuals that have a prior knowledge of, or keen interest in, Molecular Medicine or Genetics and Genomics.

Areas of focus in Molecular Medicine include immunological cancers, the pathology of neuromuscular and neurodegenerative disease and the role of bioenergetics in health and disease.

Our Genetics and Genomics pathway is also very diverse, with current research at Northampton focusing on antimicrobial resistance, the genetics of neurological disease and the impact of human genetic variation on the fight against infection.

Whether you wish to follow an applied career in bioscience or go on to further study at PhD level this Programme gives you the skills, qualification and insight to follow your dreams.

To improve your employability, apply your skills and build your social capital you will also complete 240 hours of Applied Practice in a stimulating and well-structured placement. You could apply your skills to either industrial, academic, clinical or educational aspects of Molecular Bioscience and gain valuable real-world work experience.

Facilities/ Special Features

Our Biomedical Science laboratories are modern and well equipped with research facilities that will enable you to learn and develop your skills in an innovative and supportive environment. Current specialist facilities include:

  • cell culture facilities (for working with human cell lines - i.e. cancer cells)
  • genetics/genomics facilities for the analysis of DNA and RNA (including PCR and next-generation sequencing technology)
  • specialist Microbiology laboratories fluorescence, bright-field and electron microscope.
