What will I learn?

Biology is the science of life itself, exploring the structure, function, growth, origin, evolution, and distribution of living organisms. Biology covers a diverse range of subject areas and this MSc by Research provides an opportunity for students to commence research in their own specialisms.

As researchers in the School, students will have the opportunity to collaborate with academics working on studies and projects. The MSc is awarded based on the quality of the student’s thesis and ability to present and successfully defend their chosen research topic in an oral examination (viva voce). They are also expected to demonstrate how their research findings have contributed to knowledge or developed existing theory or understanding.
