Biotechnology

This course is intended for life science graduates who wish to develop their knowledge and skills in biosciences with an emphasis on biotechnology. The 18 month route includes an internship module in which students are offered the opportunity to integrate theory and practice and carry out a real project in collaboration with a host organisation. The aim of the course is to produce scientists who will be able to contribute to a range of careers including academic, commercial, industrial and healthcare applications of biotechnology.

Entry requirements

Applicants should hold the equivalent of a 2.2 undergraduate degree in bioscience or biological chemistry. We would expect to see the study of the following subjects in the final year of the undergraduate degree: molecular biology (e.g. recombinant DNA), microbiology, biochemistry, cell biology. Applicants whose 1st language is not English should have an IELTS 6.5 overall, with no component lower than 5.5. Pre-sessional English is available if required. For the 18 month route students must meet the internship requirements, normally assessed by an interview during the 1st term of the course.
