The Biocatalysis program is offered by The University of Manchester.

Overview

State-of-the-art equipment, new laboratories and first-rate spectroscopic services support and compliment these activities. 

Each student has at least one supervisor and an advisor with pastoral responsibility.

In addition to superb research facilities, postgraduates in the school have a graduate common room and use of a computer cluster. 

You receive training in health and safety, fire fighting, library skills and written and oral presentation skills.

Please note for the majority of projects where experimentation requires further resource: higher fee bands (where quoted) will be charged rather than the base rate for supervision, administration and computational costs. 

The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive and, therefore, you will not be required to pay any additional bench fees or administration costs.

Career opportunities

The Biocatalysis programmes at The University of Manchester we offer place our graduates in the best position to enhance their career prospects.  Many of our Masters students progress to PhD study.  A number of our PhD graduates have taken up postdoctoral research positions in the UK or overseas, where as others have chosen a career in academia or move into industry such as GlaxoSmithKline, AstraZeneca, NNL.  The nature of our degrees provides graduates with transferrable and specific skills needed for different careers.
