What is this course about?
This course equips students with a broad skill-base ensuring graduates will have a wide range of career options. The first year of this course provides students with a foundation in science and subjects are common for all students. After Year 1, students separate in to their chosen specialist area from a choice of three areas:
- Biosciences with Biopharmaceuticals
- Brewing & Distilling
- Pharmaceutics and Drug Formulation
The course offers a blend of academic and practical skill development and includes a period of industrial work placement.
Common Entry (CEY)
By choosing ‘CEY’ Common Entry applicants are applying for a place on the course but postponing the decision as to which science speciality to opt for until the end of Year 1. This allows students time to explore the future career choices open to graduates in the different specialism streams. Expert guidance will be available from lecturing staff members in the Institute and ultimate choices can then be considered in light of academic performance across a range of science subjects.
Biosciences with Biopharmaceuticals (BPH)
Brewing and Distilling (BRD)
This option will equip graduates with the necessary knowledge, skills and competencies in brewing and distilling and enable them to make a contribution to this recognised growth industry. For more information on the BRD option click here »
