This is a four-year integrated master’s programme aimed at developing enhanced research and personal skills for students seeking a high-level career in research (eg studying for a PhD or working in industry). For the first three years of study, students will select one of the available pathways (Anatomy and Human Biology, Biochemistry, Bioveterinary Science, Genetics, Microbiology, Pharmacology, Human Physiology, Tropical Disease Biology, Zoology, Biological and Medical Sciences or Biological Sciences) and will study a mix of theory and practical modules appropriate to the BSc Honours programmes for these areas. Students in three year programmes can transfer into C900 for a fourth year, subject to performance. During the fourth (master’s) year, students will take advanced modules to enhance further their research and personal skills and will join a research team to undertake a significant research project. Students will also have the opportunity for a research internship in the UK or overseas, or to spend time working in industry in this final year. The course is accredited by the Royal Society of Biology (Advanced Accreditation) www.rsb.org.uk. This programme is available with a Year in China. The Year in China allows undergraduate students the opportunity to spend one year at our joint venture, Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU), following XJTLU's BA China Studies degree classes. XJTLU is a fully English-speaking university, located in Suzhou. If you wish to study this programme with a Year in China please put the option code YC in the Further Choices section of your UCAS application form.
