MRes Molecular biophysics
(Plus optional exchange programme to National University of Singapore)
Acquiring quantitative skills in biology is of paramount importance for the next generation of professional scientists working in industry and academia. The programme MRes offers an integrated training programme ideally suited to learn biophysical techniques crucially important to meet this challenge. We deliver an excellent foundation for students wishing to pursue careers in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry, medical research, scientific administration within research councils or scientific publishing.
Our programme is designed for outstanding graduates in the life and physical sciences (Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Physics) who want to apply their knowledge to biological problems at the research level. Taught modules cover biophysics and molecular biology techniques with elements of bioinformatics. For the second course requirement, King’s offer a wide selection of research projects to prepare students for a PhD degree.
National University of Singapore
Students have also the exciting option of carrying out their research project at the National University of Singapore (NUS), with which we have partnered with the Biology Department in order to move forward outstanding science in an international context. Similarly, NUS Biology (and Physics) students will be given an option to enrol in our Mres programme.
Funding for Home/EU students
Six MRC Advanced Course Master's studentships are available providing tuition fees and a stipend. All UK and specific EU applicants who meet the MRC’s eligibility requirement for these studentships will automatically be considered for these awards. For EU students, the programme carries 90 ECTS credits.
