Molecular Biology


Course overview

Cell and Molecular Biology is an exciting and constantly developing area of the life sciences. Progress in our knowledge and understanding of life at this level has contributed to major developments in medical biology, biotechnology and agriculture, as well as in biology itself. A significant number of Nobel Prizes for medicine and physiology, as well as several for chemistry, have been awarded for research of a cellular and molecular nature - a testament to the huge importance of this subject.

Our Cell and Molecular Biology course takes you from the basics which underpin the subject right through to the forefront of current knowledge. It will provide an excellent preparation for a variety of careers, both subject related and generic.

The opportunity to spend two semesters at one of our partner institutions in the United States or Europe will allow you to add an international dimension to your studies, and to experience a new and exciting learning environment.
