Molecular Cell Biology Degree

Students with an interest in biological sciences and biological systems can benefit from studying a molecular cell biology degree abroad at different degree levels to pursue a career in the science and technology industry.

Molecular cell biology can be studied initially at the undergraduate level through a BSc (Hons) Molecular Cell Biology degree, which usually takes four years of full time study to complete. Alternatively, if the student already holds an undergraduate degree in molecular cell biology, or a related field, they can apply to study a postgraduate degree in molecular cell biology. Postgraduate degrees can take between one and two years of full time study to complete, and are designed to further the students knowledge in various specialist fields of study.

Most degree programs will focus on many subject areas throughout the course including modules such as modern biology, marine biology, biochemistry, general chemistry, data interpretation, ecology and DNA.

Entry requirements to a molecular cell biology degree program vary depending on the course level you are applying to, and the country wherein the degree is awarded. You are normally advised to have at least A Level equivalent academic experience, and you may need specific science education also. Some international students will be required to write a letter to the university explaining their passion for the course, as well as to prove their language proficiency. You are advised to contact the institution you are applying to for a full list of course entry requirements.
Graduates of molecular cell biology degree programs often work directly in the field of biology in various job roles including laboratory technician, biology teacher/ lecturer, research specialist and molecular cell biologist. Due to the vast amount of core skills gained throughout the degree program students will be well equipped to work in many other job roles involved with medicine, genetics, botany and biotechnology.
