Microbiologists study bacteria, fungi, and viruses, and their role in infectious diseases in humans, other animals and plants. You will also learn how microorganisms contribute to environmental nutrient cycling, brewing, food, and biotechnology industries, whilst you develop the scientific and analytical skills demanded in a broad range of professions.
Here’s why we think Aberystwyth is a great place to study microbiology.
- Passionate teaching staff that conduct research in all areas of microbiology
- Fantastic bio-imaging and microscopy suite, modern laboratories and fermentation facilities
- Farms and woodlands for studying environmental microbes and those that impact on animal health
If you are fascinated by bacteria, fungi and viruses, the organisms we cannot see but which surround and inhabit our bodies, then microbiology is for you.
You will be fully supported with developing your employability skills throughout the degree scheme. The degree will allow you to develop specialist skills such as using bioinformatics tools to analyse and interpret DNA and protein sequences and using a range of culture-dependent and independent methods for characterising microbes as well as developing a range of transferable skills highly valued by employers.
Your degree will open up a range of exciting opportunities for employment and further training. You will be a strong candidate for work as a biomedical scientist, haematologist, toxicologist, technical brewer, and science writer. Your training you will also develop a wealth of skills that can be easily transferred into almost any graduate or professional employment.
