Microbiologists are in demand in medical research, quality control, and the biotechnology industry.
The significant and relevant work experience gained during the year of industrial/professional experience makes graduates of this course especially attractive to employers. 95% of our graduates are in work or further study within six months of completing this course.
Many of our graduates secure jobs as researchers working in universities, pharmaceutical and bioscience companies and institutes.
Some of our graduates progress into laboratory-based careers in clinical or technical roles that do not involve research.
The transferable skills you will develop will also leave you well-equipped for a wide range of careers 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.
