The MSci Plant Science course will enable students to achieve an integrated master's degree while they study for a BSc, giving them significant research experience that will be invaluable for a PhD and a career in research. Students will examine the growth, development and productivity of plants, learning how to apply concepts from a wide range of biological areas to plant science, including genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry and cell biology. Students will have the chance to go on a field course on the Mediterranean island of Mallorca in the Easter vacation of their first year, when the orchids are in bloom. This course has Advanced Accreditation from the Royal Society of Biology. In recognition of this, a graduate of an advanced accredited course can apply for membership of the Royal Society of Biology at Member (MRSB) level after just two years of practice, rather than the usual three. These graduates can attain the qualifications of Chartered Biologist or Chartered Scientist one year sooner than graduates from other courses.
