This programme is offered either full and part time basis.
You’re ready to specialise in plant genetics and crop improvement at a ground-breaking centre for this highly prized discipline. With this expert, cutting edge training, you’ll have the perfect grounding to move into PhD research or a career in the practical plant breeding.
This MSc enables you to explore genetics, plant genomics, plant molecular genetics and statistics for plant science, in addition to training valuable transferable skills. Alongside your taught modules, you’ll also work on a laboratory-based research project (worth 60 credits), giving you the opportunity to work closely with world-leading scientists at the John Innes Centre or a relevant industry partner. The John Innes Centre – based on Norwich Research Park alongside UEA – is one of the world’s leading research institutes in plant genetics and crop improvement, so there are few places in the world where you’ll find a better opportunity to work with such leading authorities and world-class facilities.
Degree Subject Biological Sciences or Plant Biology Degree Classification Good first degree (minimum 2.1 or equivalent) Alternative Qualifications Candidates with other experience, such as employment within a plant breeding company or relevant research experience, will also be considered.
