WHAT CAREER CAN YOU HAVE?
All our master’s programmes emphasise the practical skills that employers need, whether that is the ability to identify plants, carry out environmental assessments or use the latest cutting-edge molecular techniques. As a University of Reading MSc graduate, you will be well equipped to work in the field or the lab, and in the private or public sector. Many of our graduates go on to study for a PhD and pursue a career in research either in industry or in universities.
Typical roles of graduates from our ecology and wildlife-based MSc programmes include conservation officers, project managers, field ecologists and environmental consultants. Graduates from our biomedical MSc programme typically go on to pursue PhD studies or work in the pharmaceutical industry.
You are normally required to have a good undergraduate honours degree in biological science (such as biomedical sciences, biological sciences, biochemistry or microbiology) or equivalent from a university outside the UK. IELTS: 6.5 overall with no element less than 5.5 (or equivalent).
