Course content

The Bioscience MRes is a research-based postgraduate course designed to provide you with the necessary skills for a career in industry, the public sector or academia.

The course provides high-quality training in the methods and practice of research not normally offered in taught masters courses, and also allows you to choose from a host of optional modules according to your personal and professional interests.

You will build your knowledge of a wide range of organisms, from microbes to mammals, and develop both theoretical and practical skills that will help you to maximise your professional potential.

Your research project will examine a specialised subject within the fields of genetics, evolutionary biology, neuroscience, ageing and host microbe interactions.

Course structure

The course is structured to include a significant research component that comprises at least 50 per cent of the working year; a series of supporting taught modules make up the other half.

To be awarded the MRes, you must obtain 180 M-level credits, 80 credits from taught and subject-specific modules and 100 credits through the completion of the research project.

Areas of study

The particular focus of the course depends on your choice of project topic, which also determines which optional modules are available. The exact nature of the course is therefore to some extent unique to each student.

The core Research Methods module is at the heart of the MRes and equips you with a fundamental understanding of the research process across a wide and dynamic range of disciplines. Additional elements of the course aim to provide an integrated, employment-focused, research training programme for students wanting to develop their research skills in the biosciences.

Past research project topics have included human host-microbe interactions, pollination ecology and the loss of genetic diversity among threatened species.
