University of Leicester
1st or 2nd Class Honours degree in a biological science subject awarded by a British university, or equivalent. Significant relevant work experience may be considered.
The laboratory course comprises taught practical modules that introduce a variety of modern molecular techniques and research strategies, supported by a lecture programme. Students then undertake a 7 month research project chosen from a broad range offered by Departments of the College of Medicine, Biological Sciences and Psychology, the MRC Toxicology Unit, or collaborating research institutes or industrial partners (when available). The spread of projects covers a wide variety of disciplines involving molecular genetics and a variety of organisms.
Continuous assessment is a major element of the course. Written assignments are used to assess a student's analysis and understanding of the taught practical modules and there are 2 examinations. Assessment of the laboratory research project contributes 2/3 of course credits, and is based on performance in the laboratory, a written report and research seminar.
