New Masters of Science courses are unique in Scotland

New Masters of Science courses are unique in Scotland

Abertay University has launched a suite of undergraduate integrated Masters of Science courses - the only programmes of their kind in Scotland.

The MSci Biomedical Science, MSci Forensic and Analytical Science and MSci Environmental Science are designed to give students an extra edge in the competitive job market by enhancing the knowledge and skills learned on the University’s undergraduate BSc (Hons) science courses.

Students learn advanced, research-led theory, then put it into practice through professional placements, research projects and laboratory work in our state-of-the-art facilities.

“These new MSci programmes aim to accelerate graduates’ careers and open the gates to a range of options, including research and technical employment in public and private sector settings, or further study.” - Dr Ben Jones, Head of Division of Science

The courses are supported by our combination of academic experts, and graduates leave with a Masters level qualification and the prerequisites for Registered Scientist recognition by the Science Council.

Students will have access to Abertay’s new £3.5m science labs, which were officially opened by Dame Anne Glover just last year.

Head of the Division of Science, Dr Ben Jones said: “These new MSci programmes aim to accelerate graduates’ careers and open the gates to a range of options, including research and technical employment in public and private sector settings, or further study.”

The MSci programmes are eligible for SAAS funding, subject to individual student circumstances.

Eligibility to study the courses is dependent on academic performance throughout years 3 and 4 of the BSc (Hons).

To gain access to the MSci programmes, students must first apply for the relevant BSc (Hons) degrees (Biomedical Science, Environmental Science and Technology or Forensic Sciences).

Applicants must have passed grades of 120 credits in both year 3 and year 4, maintaining an annual GPA of at least C+ (2.5), as well as a successful interview and offer of a placement.
