This degree is similar to MSci Biochemistry but it gives you a choice of units that bias your study towards areas relevant to biotechnology and molecular biology. The topics offered allow you to choose your specialism while developing your knowledge and research skills. As an MSci student you will carry out an extended laboratory project in your fourth year in a relevant research area. This individual research project will last for up to 16 weeks under the supervision of a research group leader and will allow you to develop expertise in your topic and grow as an independent researcher. You will also study synthetic biology alongside a choice of either cell biology of development and disease or protein assemblies and molecular machines.
