MSci Integrated Masters Programme

The MSci Integrated Masters is designed to increase your practical ability and employability, giving you focused training in laboratory research that results in the award of a Masters degree. You will build on your experience and develop your own research project that you will write up in the form of a grant proposal. You'll receive training in a variety of research skills and carry out a 5-month, full-time project in your host lab based on the proposal you have written.

In addition to enhancing your laboratory skills you will develop your ability to think critically and analytically, learn how to formulate new ideas and research hypotheses and develop skills in data analysis, interpretation and communicating scientific information.

You must be a current student on one of our Biological Sciences or Biomedical Sciences courses to apply.
