Our Analytical Chemistry Group has research interests and expertise spanning criminal forensic science, environmental sampling, archaeology, geology, pathology and drug analysis.
This interdisciplinary group is well-connected with industry and fellow research institutions worldwide. Its research activities span sustainability, ethical resource use and biodiversity loss in relation to wildlife, food production and animal-based leisure.
Learn how and why animals behave the way they do. Take a work placement that will open up wide-ranging careers in wildlife, conservation, zoo education and beyond. Gain the skills you’ll need to investigate animals and contribute to important discoveries.
Gain the skills to protect and manage wildlife and habitats to make a difference to their future survival. Train in the technologies and scientific methods used in modern conservation.
Learn how and why animals behave the way they do and gain the skills you’ll need to contribute to important discoveries. Our four-year course includes a foundation year when you'll build up your scientific skills, before moving onto our BSc (Hons) Animal Behaviour.
Our MSc Applied Bioscience course will develop your skills within several major areas of applied bioscience, including molecular cell biology, biomedical genetics and specialised topics in medical diagnostics. You'll focus on the rapidly evolving research into the applications of bioscience in healthcare, to diagnose and treat diseases. You'll also develop a comprehensive and critical understanding of the theory and practice of advanced analytical techniques as used and applied in bioscience.
Develop the practical skills you need for a career in wildlife conservation. The course was developed in partnership with environmental organisations to ensure you’re skilled and employable in this rewarding area. It allows development of skills including the use of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) software, research skills and communication skills, with an optional laboratory-based module on conservation genetics.
Our Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS)-accredited course gives you a thorough grounding in the theory and practice of diagnosis and treatment of diseases and the underlying molecular and cellular biology, preparing you for a career in a range of biomedical fields.
Develop your scientific skills and explore new specialisms. If you’re a working biomedical scientist take a step towards being a Chartered Scientist status by studying on our Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) accredited distance-learning course.
Biomedical science explores the basis of disease, and searches for new treatments. In our dedicated laboratories you can pursue your training in a number of aspects of biomedical science research.
