MRes Environmental and Biological Nanoscience
The Environmental and Biological Nanoscience programme from University of Birmingham is a collaborative endeavour between the Environmental Health Science group in the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences and the School of Biosciences. The course is research focused, with a large project carried out in state-of-the-art laboratories.
|Full-Time Duration:||1 year|
|Tuition Fee:||£26,040 per year|
|Location:||Birmingham, United Kingdom|
This Environmental and Biological Nanoscience programme from University of Birmingham is designed to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of nanoscience and its potential environmental and human health-related risk.
It focuses on the fundamental and underpinning science but also discusses applications, synthesis and policy, and regulatory responses. The programme is research focused, with a large part devoted to an independent but supervised research project carried out in state-of-the-art-laboratories.
- Environmental and Biological Nanoscience
- Molecular and cellular mechanisms of (nanomaterial) Toxicology
- Research Methods
“The transition from undergrad to postgrad can be a big step up in terms of workload and what is expected of you, but there is so much support available to you as a postgrad student, from academic writing support (if you’ve been out of education for a few years or just want a bit of extra help) to mental health and wellbeing services. The careers support is fantastic – the uni puts on employer fairs throughout the year and you have access to one on one support from the Careers Network team, who can help you develop your skills ready for your next step!”

This MRes is designed for those with interests in human and environmental health implications of nanoparticles and is recommended for those both in work and just leaving undergraduate education, with interests in nanoscience and its implications for health, safety and the environment.
Manufactured nanoparticles and nanomaterials offer many potential socio-economic, health and environmental benefits as a result of the novel properties and behaviour that materials can exhibit when manufactured at the nanoscale.
While the production of nanomaterials is undergoing exponential growth, their biological effects and environmental fate and behaviour are relatively unknown.
- At least a second-class Honours degree awarded by an approved university or institution in an appropriate subject
- A degree without Honours, awarded by an approved university or institution in an appropriate subject, followed by at least two years appropriate postgraduate experience
