The MBiol is a new programme offering breadth of study from cellular level through human biology to the global environment. It offers the same core options as Biomedical Science and Biological Science with further modules from year two onwards. These include Cancer Therapeutics – taught by a leading writer Lauren Pecorino and Neuroscience – which explores conditions such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Disease. There is also the option graduate after three years with a BSc Hons Biology degree. You will benefit from small laboratory class sizes and tutor support, as well as opportunities to attend lectures from other programmes such as biomedical science, human nutrition, pharmaceutical science, geography and environmental science. It also offers field work and practical laboratory opportunities. The aims of the programme are to develop: A multidisciplinary understanding of biology, from molecular to global level The learning, analytical, critical, and presentational skills to support career development The ability to investigate, document and analyse living systems and understand underlying philosophical, ethical and scientific paradigms The knowledge portfolio and skills needed to thrive in industry, academia or public sector Employment opportunities in the biomedical science, biotechnology, environmental consultancy, agribusiness and sustainable development sectors. The MBiol makes you valuable to an employer because of the emphasis on research with two original projects required in year three and four. Students have benefited from laboratory based experience in Spain, Turkey, United States and France. You can also apply for an extra diploma of industrial practice when you complete a placement. The MBiol's multidisciplinary structure offers the choice to study broadly or specialise. Modules do require a minimum number of students to run each year and may be subject to change. The programme is designed collaboratively between four of our departments: The Medway School of Pharmacy is a collaboration between the University of Greenwich and Kent University. It offers specialist teaching in pharmacy, pharmacology, physiology and chemistry. It scores consistently high marks in the National Student Survey each year The Natural Resources Institute (NRI) has a reputation for delivering high quality research, advice, teaching and training in support of global food security, sustainable development and poverty reduction. Projects including partnerships with the UK Government and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Life and Sports Science is where you can specialise in topics, such as medical biochemistry, medical physiology or sports science (with professional football coaching). Some subjects are vocational and accredited by professional bodies, others provide entry to teaching and research Pharmaceutical, Chemical and Environmental Science underpins its teaching with world-class research. The department has strong interests in medicinal chemistry, analytical chemistry, metabonomics, bioactive materials, chemometrics, land remediation, geographical information systems and environmental conservation and chemistry.
