UK: Cutting-edge biotech studies at Newcastle University

Located in the north-east of England, Newcastle University was recently ranked 7th in the world for international student satisfaction in the International Student Barometer Survey Autumn 2007.

It is also a member of the influential Russell Group, an association of the leading research-intensive universities in the UK. And it offers excellent undergraduate and postgraduate studies in one of the fastest growing research areas, biotechnology.

The Newcastle University program allows you to gain a good understanding of the relevant basic sciences, including:

  • molecular biology,
  • biochemistry,
  • genetics, and
  • microbiology

You can then focus on specific areas of interest, and undertake an in-depth research project of your choice in the third year of the undergraduate degree.

A unique aspect of the course is the ‘Business for the Bio-scientist’ module. This covers issues such as intellectual property, business planning, financing a new biotech company and real-life commercial case studies.

Newcastle University also has an outstanding graduate employment rate, and its Careers Service has won seven prestigious national careers awards. With more than 400 biotechnology companies just in the UK, your skills will be highly valued in the workforce once you graduate.

To find out whether Newcastle University is the right choice for you, contact our student counsellor service. They can help you with more information about all the course options in this friendly, cosmopolitan city.
