The modules included in the programme are designed to provide a fundamental basis for understanding and contributing meaningfully to biological science research. This knowledge will then be developed and you will be further intellectually challenged by its application to modern technology and research within your own area of specialism – dependent on your choice of research project. Key skills, particularly those of communication, research, IT and problem solving, will be developed through formative (e.g. discussion with and feedback from your research supervisor) as well as assessed coursework programmes which will be accompanied by detailed feedback on performance.
This course suits students with an undergraduate degree in any bioscience field and are looking to develop their knowledge and research skills linked with the institute of biological, environmental and rural science at Aberystwyth. It may be suitable to students that do not want to complete a full PhD but that would like to develop their research skills first. It is also suitable for students that would like to combine research with a taught element of a postgraduate taught course.
