Biotechnology (4 years) [MSci]

Our MSci Biotechnology course will enable you to achieve an integrated master's degree while you study for a BSc, giving you significant research experience that will be invaluable for a PhD and a career in research. You will learn about the science behind biotechnology while also looking at how to succeed in a career in the industry. The course explores how new start-up biotechnology companies are created, as well as how to assess the market potential of products and processes, create business plans and raise money from venture capitalists. Our group enterprise projects, which involve close collaboration with entrepreneurs, provide a great opportunity for you to stand out from other graduates. In Year 4, you will undertake a major research project in one of the University's more than 200 research labs to achieve your undergraduate master's award. This course is designed to produce graduates who have a solid understanding of science, technology and business management, along with the entrepreneurial skills required to exploit technological advances within a competitive environment. **Work with entrepreneurs** Undertake a group enterprise project involving collaboration with entrepreneurs to develop a business plan for a real life sciences product or service. **Excellent career prospects** 95% of our graduates are in work or further study within six months of completing the course, according to the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey. **Foundation year available** You can prepare for the full degree course if you do not have the appropriate qualifications for direct entry by undertaking our foundation course first. **Flexibility to transfer between courses** You can transfer between most of our biological sciences degree courses at the end of your first year or, in some cases, later.
