This MSci is a five-year integrated Masters degree with entry into either Year 1 with Highers or Year 2 with Advanced Highers or A Levels.
Microbiology is the study of the smallest living organisms (micro-organisms or microbes), which include viruses, bacteria, fungi, algae and protozoa. Microbes are a major cause of disease in humans but are useful in industrial processes from pollution control to the treatment of disease.
This Masters degree is for students who want to specialise in a single biomedical science. It’s particularly relevant if you want to pursue a research career.
In Years 1 to 4, you’ll follow the same curriculum as one of the joint Honours biomedical sciences degrees. In Year 5, you’ll focus on developing research skills and knowledge. A significant part of this course is project-based.
