This practical course is based on a single research project under the training and supervision of one of our Academic researchers. Topics tend to be interdisciplinary and range from laboratory-based fundamental science to field-based applied agriculture and ecology. The course will give you hands-on experience of your chosen specialism and can be used in preparation for a PhD. It also prepares you for careers in science administration, business where the products sold involve advanced technology, and as a consultant in many highly skilled sectors.
