Postgraduate courses

We offer a wide range of postgraduate courses in biological and chemical sciences opening up diverse, rewarding career options. Our programmes will give you the chance to develop understanding of advanced level concepts and apply your knowledge to real-world challenges in the field. Students on our Master's and PhD programmes complete independent research projects that aim to answer cutting-edge questions in biological sciences.

MSc and MRES courses

All our Master's programmes include hands-on practical experience in research. We offer a range of programmes including options for those wishing to study full-time, part-time, or those wishing to study by distance learning.

If you undertake an MSc with us, you'll study a large range of taught modules in your chosen area and undertake an independent research project. A Master's by Research, MRes, is similar but you generally take fewer taught modules while completing a more extensive research project.

Postgraduate Diplomas and Certificates

Our postgraduate diplomas and certificates provide an excellent taste of what it's like to study at postgraduate level. There are options for those who want to go on to complete a Master's course.

Short courses

Studying a short course is an excellent way to gain up-to-date skills in emerging areas, or to sample a topic without committing to an extensive period of study. We are offering multiple new short online courses for 2022 focused on our core areas of research expertise in structural biology, computational biology and cryo-EM.
