Applicants will usually require an upper second-class Honours degree (2:1) or equivalent in a biological or biomedical science subject or a related degree.
Each course has its own continuous assessment criteria based on the progress of practical and course work as well as a written degree examination. Progression to a research project is dependent on performance in the individual courses. The MSc project is assessed with the submission of a thesis and viva examination.
The teaching of our MSc Biotechnology, Bioinformatics and Bio-business programme is lecture based with self-directed learning, practical classes and tutorials to support the lecture material. In the second semester students have a unique opportunity to individually sequence and analyse the entire genome of a microorganism isolated and characterised by themselves. External experts are also regularly invited to provide specialist expertise.
Many lectures are recorded and can be viewed again when required. The MSc makes the most of hands-on learning to enable repeated exposure to evidence-based practice using real life examples..
