This programme requires International students who need a Tier 4 visa to obtain an Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) certificate. Because there is not enough time to get this and get a visa before the September 2019 entry point we are unfortunately not able to take any further applications for September 2019 from International students who will require a Tier 4 visa. Any interested applicants should instead apply for the next entry point after September 2019. For further information on ATAS and the visa process please see:
Home, EU or International applicants who do not need a Tier 4 visa are welcome to apply for September 2019.
Our Bioprocess Engineering MSc degree is an innovative course that has been developed to equip you with advanced and up-to-date knowledge in the bioprocessing field.
The focus is on providing you with a broad understanding of modern bioprocesses used in production, design and research. It covers the core biochemical engineering topics in depth and integrates all practical aspects relevant to bioprocess design and operation through the novel toolbox modules - project management; bioprocess safety; intellectual property; environmental, health and safety risks; sustainability - to produce well-rounded and sought after bioprocess engineers with a detailed insight into industrially relevant processes in biopharma and food industries and their integration.
Your practical sessions will be based in the facilities of the Advanced Bioprocessing Centre where you’ll have access to four dedicated laboratories including a purpose-built, explosion-proof, pilot-scale lab. The latest industry standard engineering software packages are available for you to use in the computing facility.
Our bioprocess engineering course has been developed in conjunction with accreditation guidelines of the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE). It is studied full-time over one year.
