    Course Summary

    The University of Glasgow’s Molecular & Cellular Biology BSc (With biotechnology) program was designed to give recent graduates with good scores in biology or related sciences a clear pathway to an advanced degree, a lucrative career in the biotechnology industry or a career in a related field. This course will give you hands-on experience in a modern, fully equipped biotechnology laboratory, as well as the scientific and technical skills you need to build your career.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market.

    Course Outline

    This course is delivered over 4 or 5 years for most students.

    Year 1:

    Your core curriculum will focus initially on ensuring that you have a complete scientific background and understand the principles of biology generally.

    Year 2:

    In year 2, you will refine your general biology skills, and begin to branch out into optional, more specialised areas which match both your interests and your intended area or areas of expertise.

    Year 3 (Honours modules):

    At this point, your studies will shift to the molecular and biotechnological sciences in great detail. In addition to Genomics, Molecular Genetics, and the properties of filaments, membranes and proteins, you’ll study experimental technique, gene expression, DNA function and biotechnology specifically.

    Year 4 (Honours modules):

    In your fourth year, you’ll begin your research project, as well as taking more advanced courses on an elective basis. You will also learn to interpret the data gained from primary research critically.

    Optional Placement Year (MSc option)

    You may also elect to take a year in research placement, either in an academic or industry context. That makes this a 5 year program resulting in an MSc degree rather than BSc. This placement may be UK-based or overseas.

    Learning & Teaching
