Course summary

Learn about the application of contemporary microbiology in health, food biosecurity and environmental sustainability to help address the world’s biggest challenges.

Biosciences research has a huge impact on helping people live longer and healthier lives. With the World Economic Forum identifying healthcare as one of the top 10 Global Challenges for 2030, there is a growing demand for specialists in this field.

This course provides you with a broad understanding of the molecular basis of biological systems, with a focus on microbes and their role in disease, developing new medicines, improving food biosecurity and environmental sustainability.

Specialise in microbiology

Microbes present global challenges, such as the rise in antibiotic resistance, as well as opportunities, such as in food biosecurity or human health. We'll equip you with the skills and knowledge to help harness the power of microbes to address these issues.

  • You’ll be based primarily within the Infection and Immunity research group at Bath where you’ll work with researchers at the forefront of microbial research, strengthening your ability to work as a scientist.
  • You’ll focus on the molecular principles underlying the biology of microorganisms, including their epidemiology, pathogenicity, virulence in the context of medicine, public health or agricultural biosecurity.

Who is this course for?

This course is for you if you’ve graduated from any bioscience, medical, veterinary or related discipline and you’re interested in specialising in a career within the field of molecular microbiology.

Career prospects

You’ll graduate with the specialist knowledge and employability skills for a career in further research, such as a PhD, or roles in academic, clinical, industrial or commercial sectors anywhere in the world. Recent examples of graduate roles include a Healthcare Scientist, an Analyst, a Production Technician and an Agricultural Engineer.
