Birkbeck, University of London
Biological, chemical or physical sciences degree, second class or better.
If English is not your first language or you have not previously studied in English, our usual requirement is the equivalent of an International English Language Testing System (IELTS Academic Test) score of 6.5, with not less than 6.0 in each of the sub-tests.
You will begin by following taught modules from our web-based courses on Principles of Protein Structure, Techniques in Structural Molecular Biology, or Protein Crystallography. Alternatively, there is the option of taking a biocomputing module from the Bioinformatics with Systems Biology course. You will also attend lectures and practicals on molecular structure and graphics, as well as a weekly course on Principles and Practice of Structural Biology.
During the first term, you will begin your research project, which is the main focus for the rest of the programme. In the second term, you will produce a written dissertation and an oral presentation on the background and plan of the research. You will submit a thesis, which will be orally examined at the end of the academic year.
Training is also provided in searching and evaluating data in literature and online databases, and in the analytical and presentational skills required by the successful research scientist.
Coursework, literature review, oral presentation, project thesis and viva voce.
