Biomedicine (MSc by Research). This exciting new Masters course provides students with a broad research training to prepare them for a career in biomedical research. This course is suitable preparation for subsequent PhD studies and for students planning a research career in industry or academia.

Students in a laboratory

MSc Nutrition and Food Science. The MSc Nutrition and Food Science course focuses on the interface between human nutrition and food science, an area of increasing importance to consumers, government and the food industry. This type of course is possible because of the establishment, within the Department of Food and Nutritional Sciences, of the Hugh Sinclair Unit of Human Nutrition: a major centre for human nutrition research. To have an active nutrition research group working alongside food scientists and technologists is unique in the UK.
