Biotechnology and Life Sciences are the studies of live and living organisms to solve all kinds of problems, changing lives for the better. They are regarded as the most promising frontier technologies for the coming decades.
These fields have a profound impact on our world. In medicine, they have helped advance the treatment of illnesses and diseases. In the agro-food area, they have helped produce healthier crops that grow faster in order to counter food shortages. They have also become a potent ally in the fight against crime by helping forensics collect and process trace evidence such as hair, skin and blood.
Biotechnology and Life Sciences give you the chance to do work that make a real difference. You could be the one to discover the next breakthrough in science. And we are here to give you the knowledge and real-world skills you need to fulfil your potential.
Our programme provides you with the opportunity to examine the fundamental sciences that underpin Biotechnology – chemistry, biochemistry, microbiology and statistics – whilst developing applications to areas such as business, ethics, and environmental science.
You will be equipped with an advanced scientific education and prepared scientifically for diverse careers ranging from medicine and pharmaceuticals to food quality, agricultural systems and bio fuels.You will be given the opportunity to thrive in your study with the following advantages:
Go beyond just studying life under a microscope, as we get you ready for the working world. Our strong partnerships and connections with businesses and employers will let you learn directly from the industry.
