In the UK, Postgraduate courses tend to be split into those that are largely taught and those that are largely research based. Postgraduate Genetic Engineering master's generally take one or two years to complete whereas Genetic Engineering PhD's will take at least three years.
Postgraduate Subject Intro: Genetic Engineering
As the study of all living organisms, the biosciences cover everything from the molecular level to beyond, including human biology, botany, zoology, genetics, microbiology and biochemistry. You will be spending long periods researching but will also need to develop presentation skills and teamwork. Some courses offer a placement in industry.
If you intend to become a scientist you will need to undertake further study, apply for a research post and choose specialisms such as forensic science, immunology or toxicology.
