BSc Plant Science / Careers

Year of entry: 2020

Career opportunities

Plant science is an area with a recognised skills shortage. Well-qualified plant scientists are in high demand to undertake research related to areas such as food security and biofuel development. 

Around one-third of graduates work in scientific research and development, which may require significant postgraduate study, usually a PhD.

The rest of our graduates go into a diverse range of careers, including teaching or communicating science, as well as careers unrelated to biological sciences including management, finance, marketing and the civil service.
