Why study postgraduate Bioscience at UEL
As a bioscience postgraduate student, you will be working in a superbly resourced and supportive environment within a School that produces top-rated research. Our master’s degrees can help you enhance or re-direct your career, or progress to further study.
- Top quality research - Research in Bioscience contributed to the figure of 86 per cent of our Allied Health research submission that was rated either ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework. This makes us the top modern university in London for our area of research and eighth in the country.
- IBMS accredited - The majority of our master’s courses are accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science, so you can be sure they have the official seal of approval.
- Over £1million invested in new teaching facilities - The new teaching labs will provide a major resource and will have a big impact on your student experience as well as increasing the University’s reputation in STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and with industrial partners and employers.
- Support and expertise- Any research you do will be linked directly to projects already being investigated by our research staff and PhD students, so you’ll be well supported and surrounded by expertise. You’ll also benefit from the support of your student peers as you work on your research projects in small groups.
- Great location for industry links - We often carry out research in collaboration with other leading research universities in London, including University College London and King’s College London as well as overseas institutions. We also arrange visits to major drug companies, hospitals and other potential employers. Representatives from these organisations also deliver lectures on site.
- Flexible timetable to suit- The course requires two days of study per week, from 9am to 5pm, or one day a week part-time. We’ve had lots of students who are employed full-time whose employers don’t sponsor them or give them time off, so they do the course part-time using their holiday allowance.
