Postgraduate study

Our postgraduate degrees help prepare you for a career across a wide range of areas. You will find our courses exciting, challenging and at the cutting edge. We have a large cohort of new staff, including three Rutherford Discovery Fellows, who bring new ideas and enthusiasm to the school.

Our staff are actively engaged in research, ensuring your projects are relevant and employ the latest methods. We have emerging and established strengths across a wide range of areas including Genetics, Evolution, Ecology, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Bioinformatics, Plant Science and Cell Biology.

The school runs a weekly seminar series in seminar room 275 (Research Building next to the tea room) on Thursdays at noon. Seminars are an important part of your postgraduate education.
