The significant research skills and experience you will gain in the Year 4 MSci research project will pave the way for a PhD, as well as preparing you for work in both industry and academia.
As Developmental Biology is not a vocational degree leading straight to a fixed career path, those graduates who decide against further study often spend their first year after graduation in entry-level jobs, building up relevant work experience to enter professional and managerial roles in a range of sectors. Many subsequently move on to exciting and high-level jobs in the UK and all over the world.
Find out more about how we help our students prepare for the workplace and the careers our graduates go into within and outside the lab.
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.
