This qualification combines taught elements that focus primarily on how to undertake excellent research. This includes general research skills (project planning, statistics, field and lab techniques) as well as skills specific to the research project. Alongside this training, students will undertake higher level research with an expert in the institute. The modules included in the programme are designed to provide a fundamental basis for understanding and contributing meaningfully to biological science research. This knowledge will then be developed and students will be further intellectually challenged by its application to modern technology and research within their own area of specialism, dependent on their choice of research project. Key skills, particularly those of communication, research, information technology (IT) and problem solving, will be developed through formative (e.g. discussion with and feedback from the research supervisor) as well as assessed coursework programmes which will be accompanied by detailed feedback on performance.
