Biology is a natural science about nature and its principles. This field of study explores living and non-living forms of organisms, including humans, animals, plants and microorganisms. Biology analyzes their structures, functioninig, growth, classifications, evolution, origin, distribution and interrelationships. It has a broad spectrum of academic fields like anatomy, astrobiology, biomechanics, botany, biophysics, pathology, zoology, neurobiology, anthropology, evolutionary biology, ichthyology, histology, biochemistry, ecology, physiology and many others.
Modern biology pays significant attention to cell structures, chemical and organic relations between atoms and molecules, gene engineering and modeling of evolution. Graduates can work in many different positions or improve knowledge at scientific research.
This master programme is fully lectured in English and its main goal is to provide technological training with a rather strong professional approach. This will allow the intervention in areas which link the primary and secondary sectors, providing new accomplishments namely in the field of microbial technology and plant biotechnology.
Our hands-on course will give you advanced laboratory skills and an in-depth knowledge of research methods to help you progress in your chosen career or to enhance your academic research prospects. You will study the interactions of pathogens within the body, the role of the human immune system and the consequences of infections.
It is a program that combines chemistry, physics and biology and focuses on molecules and their properties. Majors in: biological chemistry; physical chemistry; and biomedical research.
This biomedical Masters degree provides advanced training in the molecular and cellular basis of a spectrum of human diseases and highlights current and new treatment strategies. There is a strong emphasis on the latest molecular, genetic and cellular approaches currently being used to understand human disease and to develop novel forms of treatment.
The MProf Food & Drink Innovation (Packaging & Sustainability) offers a unique postgraduate experience, specifically designed in discussion with industry bodies (Scotland Food & Drink, Skills Development Scotland, Interface Food & Drink). As postgraduate students, highly talented individuals will work in mixed-discipline teams to develop innovative food and drink packaging and sustainable solutions.
Science is changing. We see it all around us – today’s breakthrough studies happen at and across the boundaries of tradition disciplines and involve multidisciplinary teams, techniques, and insights. Modern science is increasingly less about individual objects (molecules, computers or people), but instead focuses on the fact that the functioning of such objects must be understood within their context – a context that is shaped by the complex environment that interactions among large assemblies create.
Biotechnology is a fast-moving sector that requires highly trained individuals who are able to work innovatively across disciplines of biological sciences, engineering and chemistry. Our MSc Biotechnology is interdisciplinary and utilises modules from the Faculty of Engineering and the Centre for Molecular Nanoscience.The programme integrates biological sciences with biochemical engineering to provide training for the modern biotechnology industry.
Combine the best of Utrecht and Eindhoven University. Learn everything about the discipline Regenerative MEdicine and Technology, that has a large impact on healthcare nowadays.
Natural Sciences looks at the disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics from all the angles in order to discover the secrets behind man, molecule and materials through the insights that arise at the interface of these disciplines.
This MSc course offers an opportunity to examine some of contemporary science's most pressing issues and to develop a wide range of skills associated with masters-level study. You can choose any of the current modules within the postgraduate science programme, which means that you can tailor this MSc to suit your own interests. Our modules include areas such as Earth science, medicinal chemistry, medical physics and science and society.
The MSc and MRes courses at Leeds are designed to prepare recent graduates for a PhD programme or to begin a career in conservation. For established conservation professionals our modules provide additional skills to support them in their work. An increasing number of students treat the MSc as a conversion course, after having taken degrees in non-biological subjects.
The Master of Science is an advanced research degree taken by thesis only. This course is suited to candidates wishing to pursue a particular research topic related to the science with the objective of entering a research based rather than a management based career.
