BSc (Hons) Applied Microbiology

... United Kingdom
... Edinburgh Napier University

Course Overview

Microbes are everywhere - inside our bodies, the air we breathe, and even the food we eat. They are so small that millions can fit into the eye of a needle, yet we couldn't exist without them.

Through specialist modules in medical, food, and environmental biotechnology, you'll explore how we exploit the diversity of microorganisms in producing drugs and food and decontaminating polluted environments.

Temporary work placements are available on this course on a competitive basis through the 'Microplacements' scheme. This will prepare you for employment in various occupations requiring specialist microbiology and biotechnology knowledge.
