The BSc Hons Applied Bioscience equips you with the skills to pursue a career within biological sciences including molecular biology, biochemistry, microbiology and immunology.
With excellent laboratory and work-related learning opportunities, career options include clinical, food and beverage, environmental or industrial sectors in addition to research and teaching.
Work-related learning is available including an optional 12-week placement or one-year sandwich placement. Students have undertaken placements with organisations such as the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital Glasgow, Devro and Controlled Therapeutics (Scotland) Ltd.
As the sector matures, the nature of the companies is also changing from research and development to bio-manufacturing. Consequently, the career options have also expanded to include research, analysis, production, and quality assurance and regulatory affairs.
