Want to be at the forefront of scientific research into microbes and their role in developing new medicines, tackling diseases and improving the environment?
Northumbria is the only UK university to offer Microbiology as an individual discipline, giving you the opportunity to develop specialist knowledge and break new ground as a scientist.
Gain hands-on, immersive experience, in high tech facilities, working alongside leading academics. Advance your expertise in clinical and environmental microbiology, studying how viral and bacterial diseases work and how you can use microbes to create new medicines.
You’ll cover microbial taxonomy, bioinformatics and molecular biology, using bacteria and viruses to develop new technologies and substances through data analysis and genome sequencing.
With opportunities to develop your theoretical knowledge, advance your own research, and increase your profile through articles and publications, this course equips you for further PhD study or for a career in microbiology.
You should have a minimum of a lower second class (2.2) UK honours science-based degree, or an equivalent qualification, which includes the study of microbiology, cell biology or genetics and you should have completed a scientific research project or module in your final year.
