Course Information

Microbiology is of growing importance in science, medicine, industry and society, as we seek on the one hand to control microbial pathogens in our hospitals and communities, while on the other, making use of an ever broader range of microorganisms in biotechnology industries. Microbiology is therefore also an applied science, helping health and medicine through the study of pathogens, their epidemiology, and resistance to antibiotics. Microorganisms are also widely used in the agriculture, food and environment industries, for instance in oil spill clean-up.

Career Opportunity

Career Opportunity

Many of our graduates pursue research careers in a wide range of research laboratories, both in the UK and overseas. If you are interested in health and medicine, many positions for microbiologists exist in hospital research and diagnostic laboratories. Since engineered microorganisms are used throughout biotechnology, biotechnology companies, including the pharmaceutical, food and brewing industries, are extensive employers of Microbiology graduates. A science degree more generally can be used in administrative roles in the civil service, pharmaceutical, food, fermentation and related industries.
