Life Sciences

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

When studying biological & life sciences, students learn different characteristics of natural science. Depending on the area of focus, students may study the human body, plant biology, or animal science in order to help with real-world problems.
