What will I learn?

Course summary

  • Become trained in research methods and complete a high level research project
  • Study for a higher degree by research in our well-respected Biomolecular Sciences Research Centre.
  • Undertake research in disease mechanisms, bioanalytical chemistry (incorporating the Centre for Mass Spectrometry Imaging), molecular microbiology, or chemistry and biomaterials.

A higher degree by research involves training in research methods and a laboratory based high level scientific investigation. The nature of the work and the time it takes to finish the research means a research degree is demanding and needs great commitment.
