MSci Integrated Masters Programme

The MSci Programme takes students coming from the Biological or Biomedical Sciences streams. This programme provides an additional year of study in the indicated specialisms that 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.

Based from the outset in one of our internationally renowned research laboratories, you will build on your Level 4 experience but go well beyond it: you will develop your own research project that you will write up in the form of a grant proposal, 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.

Entry to the MSci Programme will be by interview and you must maintain a B3 average at first attempt across your Life Sciences Modules throughout Levels 1, 2, 3 and 4 to be eligible.
