Career opportunities

The significant and relevant work experience gained during the year of industrial/professional experience makes graduates of this course especially attractive to employers.

Our graduates go into a range of careers after gaining transferable skills in reading, research, writing, analysis and presentations.

Our course prepares graduates particularly well for non-laboratory-based science careers such as management, administration, media, publishing, museum work, science communication or science policy work.

Accrediting organisations

This course has Advanced Accreditation  from the Royal Society of Biology.

Advanced Accreditation recognises academic excellence in the biosciences, highlighting degrees that contain a significant research element and educate the future leaders of research and development.

The criteria require evidence that graduates meet defined sets of learning outcomes, including gaining substantial research experience.

In recognition of this, a graduate of an advanced accredited course can apply for membership of the Royal Society of Biology at Member (MRSB) level after just two years of practice, rather than the usual three.

These graduates can attain the qualifications of Chartered Biologist or Chartered Scientist one year sooner than graduates from other courses.
