Microbiology is the study of microscopic organisms, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites.
Microbiology focuses on the biology of micro-organisms that are unicellular, multicellular, or acellular (without cells).
These include microbes like bacteria and fungi, and covers concepts like growth and regulation. It also includes how microbes react with each other and their environments.
On this course, we’ll look at how micro-organism work collectively to maximise their success. We’ll look at how we can manipulate them and their behaviour with a view to improving health.
Our course curriculum is shaped by the work of our world-leading researchers to make sure you’re learning the latest advances. This will also help you gain an understanding of the fundamentals of the field.
We’ll start with a broad-based curriculum where you’ll study a wide range of life sciences topics at Levels 1 and 2. We’ll explore core concepts such as:
- cell biology
- biological organisation
- molecular mechanisms and processes
You will develop your practical skills such as laboratory skills, data analysis, and experiment design. This will prepare you for designing and carrying out projects later in your course.
You’ll then focus more on key aspects of microbiology at Levels 3 and 4, such as biochemistry, molecular structure, and gene regulation. Throughout the duration of the course, you have the flexibility to pick modules that appeal to you, highlighting to future employers where your interests lie.
Tuition fees for International students will increase by no more than 5% per year for the length of your course.
Tuition fees for Scottish students is €2,100 and for the Rest of UK is €10,700.
