Course content

Our MSc by Research in Life Sciences is a cross-disciplinary programme enabling students to further develop their research skills by focusing on a specialist project.

This course provides an opportunity for students from non-biological subjects to begin research in life sciences. Research is conducted in a broad range of topics in biology and life sciences and as a researcher in the School, you will collaborate with academics working on high-impact studies and projects.

The School undertakes research at molecular, cellular, organism and population levels in order to answer fundamental questions in molecular biology and biomedical science, forensic science and microbiology, animal and plant biology, and evolution and ecology.

Research programmes rely on your independent study and research. You will be encouraged to join the research group and community of your supervisory team of academic staff.
