The study of Microbiology at the University of Leeds requires expertise in a range of areas, such as immunology, genetics, biochemistry and cell biology, which we'll train you in throughout your degree. On our undergraduate degree, you’ll study a range of microbiological topics affecting humanity today, such as bacterial resistance to antibiotics, use of microbes in biotechnology for food production and agriculture, and how microbes cause disease. There’s a focus on practical and analytical training in microbiological and molecular techniques, equipping you for a wide range of future careers in scientific and health research, and beyond. Our integrated Masters offers you an additional year of specialist training and an advanced qualification. You’ll study specialist research topics and undertake an extended research project. **Make an Impact** Microbiology is the study of living organisms that are too small to be visible with the naked eye, including bacteria, fungi and viruses. These microbes are key to our understanding of life on this planet – from human and animal disease, to better food production and microbial involvement in global cycles. **Course highlights:** - An opportunity to study disciplines complementary to Microbiology such as Biochemistry and Genetics. - A wide range of research-led optional modules including Applied Biology and Agriculture, Introduction to Pharmacology, Chemotherapy, The Power of Genomics. - Extensive training opportunities in microbiological and molecular techniques – essential for careers in scientific research. - We received a 100% satisfaction score for Microbiology in the most recent National Student Satisfaction survey (NSS, 2017)
