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 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.
Life Sciences include scientific research directions with an interdisciplinary bias and a market orientation. The focus is on applying scientific findings from contemporary biology, chemistry, medicine and related fields.
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.
This is a one year, full-time postgraduate qualification that will lead to a Master of Science in Environmental Sciences. The key concept of the course is to produce environmental scientists with an interdisciplinary background able to tackle the broadest range of environmental protection issues.
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.
In addition to providing a good grounding in core theory and practical training, this programme enables you to specialise in medical, industrial or environmental biotechnology with the opportunity to complete a research project within one of these areas.
Biology (with the option of a track in Environmental Science) focuses on how plants, animals and micro-organisms have adapted to their environment, integrating all levels of biological organisation from molecules and cells up to the ecosystem.
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.
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.
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.
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.
