We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Plant Biotechnology provide specialist knowledge of the physiology, breeding, and pathology of plants at the molecular level and their use in industrial applications.
Popular postgraduate specialisms in this subject include Plant Biology, Plant Science and Plant Agriculture. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Agriculture, Biology, or Chemistry.
Plants and their biological compounds are essential for many of the day-today products we use and consume, such as proteins and metabolites for food and pharmaceuticals.
It is to this end that you will scrutinize the molecular structures and processes which underpin plant-insect, plant-pathogen, and crop-weed relationships, and how these enable the development of tools and technologies to aid plant growth, pest control, and post-harvest quality control. You can also explore the production of renewable resources, including bioconversion and bioenergy.
With this experience – together with practical skills you’ll gain such as lab testing, bioimaging, and data analysis - numerous careers are open to you. From positions in conservation and wildlife programmes, to consultancy within government agencies and NGOs, and even product design and development.

The achievements of Israeli agriculture are renown worldwide. At its inception, the country was largely arid, rock-ridden and overgrown with weeds, bare mountains, barren fields, infested marshes, and an undeveloped water supply. Read more
Are you a recent graduate, scientist, engineer or manager looking to develop your professional skills in multidisciplinary biotechnology and eager for a future in related sectors? The MSc in Biotechnology, Bioprocessing and Business Management opens the door to these opportunities. Read more
The Master’s degree explores how to produce healthier and safer food following a cross-cutting, farm/field-to-fork approach. Theoretical lessons are mixed with practical training, offering hands-on experience in advanced DNA RNA and protein analysis together with lab sessions in bioinformatics. Read more
Plants form the basis of life as they convert sunlight into an inexhaustible source of food and renewable raw materials. Plants also have a stabilising effect in (agro) ecosystems, a landscape function and ornamental value. Read more
The Biotechnology MSc within the Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences (IBERS) provides you with key skills, specialist knowledge and essential training for a career in industrial or academic bioscience. Increasingly, biotechnology companies are recruiting Master’s students with specialised skills to perform jobs previously the reserve of Doctorate level scientists. Read more
