Genetics allows us to understand normal events such as development, growth and ageing in terms of the underlying molecular machinery of the cell and helps explain why these processes go wrong in disease. Genetics also provides us with tools to produce improved crops and livestock.
This degree programme aims to instil a broad base of knowledge regarding Genetics at the molecular, cellular and organismal levels. Additionally, students will gain an in depth understanding of selected aspects of Genetics which will reflect the research expertise and strengths within the School, and will be instructed in the many applications of this subject.
In your fourth year you will undertake a year's industrial placement and graduate after five years with an MSci (an undergraduate Masters degree) instead of a BSc. Placements vary considerably but in general terms, you will be placed in an industrial, commercial or research environment where you will obtain a breadth of practical experience to complement your degree programme and enhance your employability.
