AT A GLANCE
This diverse course explores all aspects of biological life, from genes and cells to populations and ecosystems, and will prepare you for laboratory roles or further study on a research career pathway.
The course provides all of the practical skills needed for working in a laboratory, including preparing solutions, chemical handling and working with state-of-the-art laboratory instruments, and you’ll also undertake nutritional, chemical and microbiological analysis of food, air, soil and water, and investigate chemical synthesis, gene cloning, protein analysis and other microbiological techniques.
From an academic perspective, you’ll study the key environmental and biological principles that govern the natural world, diseases, anatomy and physiology, and also gain the enhanced research skills required for further study.
This course is taught in UCW’s brand new and state-of-the-art laboratories by a King’s College London graduate with a First Class Degree in Biotechnology and a PhD in Microbiology
