What is a Masters course?
A Masters is a postgraduate course usually taken full time over 12 months. A Masters can provide training to allow you to specialise in a specific area of biology or it may focus more specifically on the development of research skills across one or more disciplines.
All of our Masters courses are a mixture of research placements and taught course units. Our taught course units utilise a range of teaching methods including tutorials, lectures, seminars, practical workshops and eLearning.
In addition to your course specific research and taught units you will also take part in transferable and generic skills workshops, seminars and training.
Our Masters courses vary in their ratios of research to teaching with some having a significant research component. Click on the “Course Structure” section of the courses you are interested in to see the amount of research involved.
