The programme provides training in research methodology starting with student-centred modules in statistics and project planning.

The major activity of the programme is a focused research project which can be taken in the areas of biological sciences, food sciences or vision sciences. You will have the opportunity to select your project from a list approved by our highly experienced research supervisors. The projects pose cutting-edge research questions relevant to the work in which staff are currently engaged.

You will receive training in the skills required to support research but the majority of your work (75%) will be devoted to research through experimentation and hypothesis testing. Many projects feature the use of newly-developed technologies relevant to the investigation in biological or vision sciences.

The programme is deliberately flexible to provide additionality and enable attendance at lectures in subjects that underpin and support your research.

Progression Opportunities

Graduates from this programme may go on to study PhDs and progress to positions as academic researchers or consultants. Many opportunities also exist in subject-related industry.

Programme description

The programme has a wide-ranging curriculum dealing with mechanisms of disease development, including the cell and molecular biology of these processes, as well as the pathophysiology and molecular aspects of medicine.

The development of laboratory skills is a key component of the course and an emphasis is placed on laboratory based practical classes, for example, in the Biomolecular Studies, Biomolecular Microbiology and Research Project modules.

As a postgraduate student in the Department of Life Sciences, you will be part of a highly respected multi-disciplinary research-active department. This research underpins the learning and teaching experience of the MSc programme. The University is ranked in the top 20 in the UK for allied health research at worldleading and internationally excellent standards in the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014).

Employment Opportunities

GCU is highly regarded by employers as a provider of qualified graduates with the knowledge and skills necessary to compete in a very competitive market.

Career opportunities can be found in the areas of health and medicine enterprises, biomedical, biotechnology, university and industry research divisions, as well as further study, for example a PhD.

Programme Description

Tuberculosis and cholera are well-established diseases that continue to devastate populations around the world, previously unrecognised infectious human pathogens such as Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) and new strains of influenza emerge. For almost a century mankind has relied heavily on vaccines and antimicrobial drugs to either prevent or treat infectious diseases. This approach has largely been successful, but with the discovery of new pathogens and increases in resistance to antimicrobials, the challenges facing microbiologists have never been greater.

The programme provides a firm understanding of the impact of infectious disease on human populations worldwide. It takes a scientific approach to the field of clinical microbiology, emphasising the importance of research and development in the area, and exposes you to the latest advances in both the theory and practice of microbiology.

The programme provides you with comprehensive theoretical knowledge and hands-on practical experience of clinical microbiology. This will include the principles and practice of bacteriology, virology, parasitology and mycology; focusing on the transmission of pathogens, the disease process, diagnosis, treatment and the prevention of infectious disease.

Learning and Teaching Methods

A combination of lectures, seminars and practical laboratory classes, culminating in a laboratory based research project, develops the key skills required of an independent researcher.

Employment Opportunities

In addition to attaining a firm foundation of theoretical knowledge and an extensive range of practical skills, employment opportunities are enhanced through the development of a series of transferable skills necessary for success in a highly competitive market.

Career opportunities can be found in the areas of health and medicine, the life sciences sector and in university and industry research departments, as well as further study towards a PhD.

Programme Description

The programme is designed to give a deeper understanding of the inter-relationships between the environment and topics such as energy technology, environmental law, business strategies, policy and other areas. It focuses on environmental auditing, assessment and management procedures, as required by industrial and commercial bodies. Thus the programme emphasises the application of environmental knowledge, but pressures on the wider global environment are also studied. Furthermore, in order that students can better understand these applications, the basic principles of the various disciplines are also covered. The programme has a standard modular structure and a wide variety of teaching and assessment procedures are used.

Why Choose This Programme?

With increasing environmental legislation and regulation, commercial and industrial organisations, local authorities and public bodies, all require some environmental input to their activities. The environment offers opportunities to those who understand the issues involved and have a vision broad enough to grasp their inter-disciplinary nature. Thus, the programme offers students the challenge to broaden their understanding of environmental issues in the context of their previous backgrounds and qualifications.

Assessment

A combination of coursework, exams and projects.

Professional Accreditation

The programme is accredited by the CIWEM, CIBSE and the Energy Institute (EI). Memberships of these institutions are free for students from accredited programmes. Membership of a professional institution is important for securing employment. The programme is recognised by the Engineering Council as suitable further learning for BEng (Hons) degree graduates from an accredited degree to meet the academic requirement for CEng registration.

Career Opportunities

Graduates of this programme can expect to find work as environmental specialists within, or related to, their previous qualifications. Graduates have gone on to work for employers including Local Authorities, regulators such as Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA), and lecturing and research and consultancy for private companies.
