Brief Description

The MSc in Biomolecular Science will provide advanced knowledge in an area which underpins the Life Sciences and Biotechnology sectors.  The course will focus on topics in molecular and cell biology and the impact of cellular dysfunctions in disease.  The course will also encompass analysis of complex biological data (data analytics), advanced characterisation techniques, regulatory affairs and biophysics.

The programme is delivered on line.

The aim of the programme is to:

  • To provide students with a fundamental knowledge of  molecular and cell biology; including advanced characterisation, data analytics and biophysics. 
  • For students to gain knowledge of the latest developments in this discipline, and learn new methods for analysing complex biological data. 
  • To improve students knowledge of regulatory affairs and safety in bio-industry, and immerse them into new research methodologies, report writing techniques and their application to discipline and industry focused projects

CAREERS
Students graduating from this program can expect roles in careers such as cell biology,  microbiology, molecular biology, immunology, diagnostics, basic research, biopharma, regulatory affairs, quality assurance/control, scientific editing/writing, lab technician, and more
