First or second class honours degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject.
Months of entry
This programme focuses on the integration of structural biology and bioinformatics approaches in order to understand the activity of proteins, including enzymes, antibodies and receptors, at a molecular level. This understanding provides a platform for techniques such as structure-based drug design, biocatalysis and protein engineering, which are the basis for many recent advances in biotechnology.
The MSc programme is designed for students who wish to specialise further in a particular field or wish to change direction from their first degree (in a related area).
