The School has developed bespoke pathways to MSc awards across all of its research areas, affording applicants the opportunity to develop their own postgraduate degree programmes. These new programmes can therefore be based around your particular areas of interest. The title of your degree award will reflect your pathway of choice, which in turn reflects the research interest of the research grouping, for example, MSc Advanced Biological Sciences (Molecular Oncology).

You will be able to choose from a series of taught modules to ensure that you develop the correct academic background and skills to excel in research. You will also be offered a flexible but guided programme of study, which will enable you to develop your leadership, information technology and professional skills. 

Pathways include:

  • Advanced Biological Sciences (Animal Sciences)
  • Advanced Biological Sciences (Cell Signalling)
  • Advanced Biological Sciences (Evolution and Behaviour)

The pathways on offer are under review and therefore subject to change, please contact the programme director for more information before you apply.
