Prospective postgraduates

Your postgraduate research

As an internationally-renowned centre for biological research, we're committed to training the next generation of leading scientists. You can work with our world-class academics, learn the latest research techniques and make new discoveries in one of our three research areas.

MRes courses

A year-long MRes course is a chance for you to develop your knowledge of scientific techniques and complete your own extended research project.

You can learn from and collaborate with our experts in one of three areas: ecology and environment, evolution and behaviour, or plant and microbial biology.
