The MRes Molecular Bioscience programme provides a thorough understanding of the key approaches for studying biological processes at the molecular level.
The programme combines biotechnology-related topics such as molecular biology, protein biochemistry and drug discovery, with modules on post-genomic biology and bioinformatics.
With a major focus on project management and advanced research skills, the programme offers you the chance to undertake an in-depth research project and specialised dissertation. Your studies will guided by a customised learning plan, taking into account your background, interests and career aspirations.
The Department of Biological Sciences has internationally respected investigators and excellent teaching and laboratory infrastructure.
By the time you graduate from the MRes Molecular Bioscience programme, you will have:
The completion of additional learning activities is required to complete your masters degree. Normally, required ALA hours will be distributed evenly across each semester, amounting to 200 hours per semester. Part-time programmes will normally require 100 to 150 hours per semester.
ALAs offered include:
Other appropriate academic activities are also available, such as participation in level three undergraduate modules and the Department's research seminar series.
Graduates from this programme are well prepared for advanced research careers in both international and Chinese university settings, as well as in the bio-industrial sector in areas such as biotechnology and pharmaceuticals. The programme also provides a solid foundation for pursuing a PhD.
