Our BSc Microbiology course involves the study of the biology of bacteria, viruses, protozoa and fungi.
Microbiologists are needed to do the research required for the future battle against diseases worldwide and to exploit microbes in the production of food.
The main focus of our course is the pathogenic potential of the organisms that cause disease in man. We also cover aspects of the biochemistry, physiology and genetics of microorganisms.
You will spend your first year learning fundamental concepts before specialising in microbiology topics in your second and final year.
