Prospective employers include pharmaceutical companies, environment agencies, hospitals, forensic laboratories, clinical trials companies, medical writing companies, scientific sales and general management jobs.

In many cases this can be a salaried position with a major company or have financial support linked to a public health laboratory or hospital such as the Respiratory Physiology Unit at the Royal Aintree Hospital in Liverpool or Wythenshawe Hospital in Manchester. The placement also counts towards the final degree classification as part of the year 2 mark. We have newly refurbished and well-equipped teaching and research laboratories for practical work in biology.

Course Summary Biology is the science of living things and is also used to explain how humans interact with and influence the natural environment.

Molecules to Microbes 20 credits. This module focuses on the basic principles involved in the build-up of molecules from atoms: This module will help you develop an understanding of genes and genetics, and their influence on evolution and development. It looks at the basic principles of molecular genetics, and the function and evolution of genes in organisms.

Cell Biology 20 credits. This module will look at the multidisciplinary nature of cell biology and the basic structure of cells, focusing on animal cells.

It will help you develop a theoretical knowledge of the fundamental physiological and biochemical functions carried out by cells. This module focuses on the origins and diversity of living organisms including humans , the environmental processes and their role in the generation of biodiversity. Biological Skills 20 credits. This module will help you develop practical laboratory skills relevant to cell, organismal, micro- and molecular biology which will form a basis for competence in biological and biochemical experimental work.

Study Skills 20 credits. In this module you will learn by observation, investigation, comparison and engagement and will develop practical learning and presentation methods which can be applied generically during year 1 and beyond. Molecular Genetics 20 credits. The aim of this module is to provide you with a cohesive lecture and laboratory programme to enable you to become aware of mammalian molecular biology and genetics and to develop an understanding of theoretical and practical knowledge in the application of clinical laboratory techniques used for diagnosis.

Human Physiology 20 credits. The aim of this module is to encourage an awareness of the physiological nature of life in humans and develop an understanding of form, function and adaptation in organ systems central to the maintenance of life and interaction with the environment.

Introduction to Parasitology and Infectious Diseases 20 credits. This module aims to provide you with a cohesive lecture programme and directed reading, enabling you to gain knowledge and understanding of: Biological Research Skills 20 credits. This module is to help you develop an ability to understand the basics of scientific research under the following areas in order to prepare you for future research based activity: This module will provide you with a cohesive lecture and practical course to emphasise the importance of microbial metabolic and genetic diversity.

You will be able to describe the different ways in which microorganisms communicate and respond to their environments and will be introduced to concepts of pathogenicity and symbiosis and the virulence factors that contribute to disease.

Population and Community Ecology 20 credits. Study the consequence of human actions on the environment from prehistoric times to the present day, the appropriate ecological principles involved in population biology and in the autecology of selected dominant species. University Wide Language 20 credits.

Courses are available in: Animal Evolution 20 Credits. This module provides a structured approach to evolution and covers the evolution of animal body plans with a focus on vertebrates as well as covering the mechanisms that drive evolution. Marine Biology 20 credits. This module provides awareness of the biology and ecology of marine environments as well as providing you with the opportunity to undertake field work and encouraging you to adopt an investigative approach to ecological studies.

Conservation Biology 20 credits. This module introduces the concepts of biological conservation and covers the consideration of different habitats and the way they influence ecosystems. The module also includes practical information of benefit to those who may consider careers in this area. This dissertation module allows you to develop independent, investigative and analytical research skills while conducting research on topic in an area relevant to your programme of study.

It further allows you to learn about science communication and the variety of ways in which science can be disseminated and communicated. This module encourages an awareness of the importance of biotechnology in industry, and develops your knowledge of a variety of biochemical processes in a range of important industrial applications. Clinical Immunology 20 credits. It helps you develop an understanding of the genetics of antibody diversity, HIV pathogensis and the current immunodiagnostic assays for infectious and non-infectious diseases.

Biology of Parasites 20 credits. This module looks at the importance of human and animal parasites, in relation to medical, veterinary or wildlife aspects, life-cycle biology, host response and the principles of parasite epidemiology and transmission.

You will also study strategies for parasite detection, diagnosis and control. The module includes a unique field course to enable you to see parasites living in their natural environment. Advanced Pathophysiology 20 credits. The aim of this module is to develop an advanced understanding of selected human physiological systems and to gain an understanding of how failure of these systems can contribute to disease. Please note that it may not be possible to deliver the full list of options every year as this will depend on factors such as how many students choose a particular option.

Exact modules may also vary in order to keep content current. When accepting your offer of a place to study on this programme, you should be aware that not all optional modules will be running each year. Your tutor will be able to advise you as to the available options on or before the start of the programme. Whilst the University tries to ensure that you are able to undertake your preferred options, it cannot guarantee this. We welcome applications from students who may not meet the stated entry criteria but who can demonstrate their ability to pursue the course successfully.

Once we have received your application we will assess it and recommend it for SAES if you are an eligible candidate. There are two different routes through the Salford Alternative Entry Scheme and applicants will be directed to the one appropriate for their course. Assessment will either be through a review of prior learning or through a formal test.

Please contact the Environment and Life Sciences school office to speak with the Admissions Tutor for this course: International applicants will be required to show a proficiency in English.

If you need to improve your written and spoken English, you might be interested in our English language courses.

We are looking for applicants with a biology background who are motivated to specialise in the areas of public health, tropical disease and infection biology. You should also consider further costs which may include books, stationery, printing, binding and general subsistence on trips and visits. The lecturers are very friendly and easy to approach. They do not only teach valuable skills for your future but also prepare you, over the years, to execute a given task independently and with confidence.

Assessment throughout is by a combination of coursework and examination, with coursework accounting for around one third of the marks in years 1 and 2 and up to a half in year 3. Continuous assessment includes the research project, laboratory reports, essays, data analysis, and presentations. I really enjoyed my time at Salford, and I feel that the Human Biology and Infectious Diseases course provided me with very interesting and useful knowledge about public health, infectious diseases and microbiology from experts in these fields.

It gave me a great background from which to start my career as a research scientist. We encourage all students to undertake a placement year between years two and three of study. Placement years are arranged by the student with our support. In our experience, final degree results and employability are enhanced for students who undertake a placement year. The placement also counts towards the final degree classification as part of the year 2 mark.
