The taught element of the programme runs from October to April. Following this, you will go on to carry out a novel, independent piece of research in May and June. At the beginning of your course you will be allocated a personal tutor who will provide you with pastoral and academic support.
Further academic support is provided via embedded tutorials in the Research Methods module. During your independent research project, you will be appointed a LJMU-based supervisor as well as an industrial supervisor if you are carrying out your project externally.
This Industrial Biotechnology Masters is based at the Byrom Street site of the University’s City Campus, which is equipped with new state-of-the-art laboratories housing a range of advanced analytical and imaging equipment to support biotechnology.
