Aayushree from Nepal, Master of Biotechnology and Bioinformatics
'To ensure we get an idea of real world discoveries and undertakings, we had guest lecturers who presented about the research conducted in their company. So, the information we were provided was not limited to text books, and it incorporated real life examples and happenings – which makes this course more realistic and interesting.'
Whether you are interested in marine biology, environmental management or wildlife conservation, we offer a range of specialised degrees for you to choose from. Our environment degrees take you out of the classroom to give you the hands-on experience that is highly sought by employers.
