Molecular Biology with Industrial/Professional Experience

Our BSc Molecular Biology with Industrial/Professional Experience course will enable you to gain experience of the workplace on a year-long placement during your degree, making you more attractive to potential employers after graduation. You will learn about DNA, RNA and proteins and the molecular events that govern cell function while exploring the relevant aspects of biochemistry, genetics and cell biology. You will also find out how the completion of large genome projects has helped us to begin to understand the molecular basis of illnesses and use genetic manipulation in biotechnology to make valuable products including blood clotting factors, insulin and vaccines. In Year 3, you will have the opportunity to go on a placement with one of our more than 100 partner organisations in the UK or abroad. Placements range from research project work to roles in education, the biotechnology industry and science communication. Our course has Advanced Accreditation from the Royal Society of Biology , which recognises academic excellence in the biosciences and highlights degrees that educate the research and development leaders and innovators of the future. **Special Features** **Excellent career prospects** 90% of our graduates are in work or further study within six months of completing this course. **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.
