Biological & Life Sciences

Law courses are intended to be taken by those wishing to further their personal development. Whether you take the courses in a classroom or online, there are a variety of specialized study areas. Some of these include regulatory theory, commercial law and intellectual property.

A master's in biological and life sciences will provide you with in depth knowledge about how life operates on earth. In addition, you will learn advanced research strategies that will allow you to conduct independent life research in the future

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.

Course - Medical Research and Biotechnology

Medical aspects of biology fascinate you. Study Medical Research and Biotechnology and you will develop into an international expert in biomedicine or biotechnology in two years.

Insulin for diabetics used to be isolated from pigs. Not all patients respond well to this. Research is focussed on producing true human insulin using bacteria. You investigate the molecular mechanism of this disease and the responses to pig and human insulin. And you try to optimise the production of human insulin with bacteria in larger quantities using a bioreactor.

You

Biology interests you. You are inventive and curious. Able to think critically. You want to know what information lies hidden in cells. You are precise and a perfectionist. You want to do work that matters.... [-]

Infection, Neurobiology, and Genetics

The separate courses includes lectures, seminars, and practical laboratory work. Immunology covers the organization and development of the immune system, its activation upon stimulation, the various effector mechanisms involved in the innate and adaptive immune responses (cellular and humoral immunity), immunological memory, tolerance mechanisms, transplantation immunology, autoimmunity, hypersensitivity, immune deficiencies, and the defense mechanisms against different pathogens. The Bacterial Physiology and Pathogenesis course will highlight the intriguing world of bacteria. It will give insight into bacterial diversity and some of their distinctive habitats. It will illustrate in molecular detail the regulatory mechanisms of microbial adaptation to these varied environments. It will discuss the role of horizontal gene transfer in bacterial evolution and the acquisition of new coding potential, such as antibiotic resistance. The course will present the current state of knowledge regarding pathogenic mechanisms and the major disease causing bacteria that use them. This will include an explanation at the molecular level of various pathogenic strategies such as motility, biofilms, quorum sensing, secretion systems, toxins, adhesion factors and immune evasion mechanisms. In the face of widespread antibiotic resistance among leading bacterial pathogens, new anti-bacterial treatment and prevention options will also be addressed. The Neurobiology course gives the student extended knowledge about how the nervous system is organized, and how it functions in order to change physiological state of neuronal circuits which underlies the generation of behavior. Thus, the nervous system is explored at molecular, cellular, systems and behavioral levels. The Genetics course aims to provide knowledge of genetic theory, methodology and analysis. Subject matter includes genetic principles and the underlying mechanisms at molecular level as well as at the cellular, organism and population levels. The course will provide students with an overall understanding of genome organization and how genetic changes at the molecular level are able to influence biological processes and how these changes affect organisms, populations and ultimately evolution....

Throughout the course you will benefit from insights into various veterinary related industries through visits, guest speakers and work placements. The course incorporates a combination of lectures, laboratory practicals, practical work in veterinary practice, guided and independent work. You will be assessed through coursework, including laboratory investigations, assignments and presentations. All elements of the RCVS Professional Syllabus will be assessed through closed book examinations. During the programme, you will have the opportunity (subject to demand) to participate in animal training and behaviour, large animal handling and a dangerous wild animal handling certificated course. A very high number of graduates gain employment. This is due to their Qualified Veterinary Nurse status and the excellent links within the industry. Assessment Methods and Research Opportunities Over the duration of the course, students will be required to undertake 60 weeks work placement in an approved veterinary practice where they will complete a Nursing Progress Log to evidence practical competencies. Work placement blocks will be interspersed with blocks in College to underpin the Foundation Degree elements of the course. You will be responsible for your own RCVS enrolment and registration. For fee information visit www.rcvs.org.uk. What grades will I need? Five GCSEs at C or above, including maths, English and science; Two weeks work exp. in a Veterinary Surgery. three A Level passes, including two at Grade B or above – one A Level B should be in a Life Science or BTEC Extended Diploma at DDM or City & Guilds Ext.
