MSc in Biophysical Sciences

Many of today's major biological challenges, such as heart disease, crop protection and age-related macular degeneration demand an approach that crosses the boundaries between biology and the physical sciences.

This course has been created to bring excellent science, mathematics and engineering graduates to a position where they can start with confidence on a wide range of careers in the life sciences. This is in response to the growing need of industry and academia for scientists who can apply their subject knowledge outside of the traditional boundaries of their discipline.
