The School of Biosciences at The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus enjoys close teaching and research links with the department in the UK. Alongside a commitment to innovative teaching, the School of Biosciences is an internationally-recognised leader in several fields, including plant and food production, food quality and safety, nutrition, and environmental protection. The latest UK Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) confirmed the School’s top position in our research areas.

At the Malaysia Campus our portfolio is rapidly expanding with new environmental science programmes and research exploring the use of underutilised plants. Our presence in Malaysia is enabling us to conduct major research projects into the uses of tropical plants, and we currently have an industrial partnership with Applied Agricultural Resources in which we are researching oil palm.

What is biosciences?

Rapid advances in technology and knowledge have a daily impact on our lives, from the air we breathe to the food we eat and the environment in which we live. Biosciences at Nottingham encompasses a range of areas as diverse as the environment and its protection; the growth, development and reproduction of plants and animals; the production and preservation of agricultural and food commodities; food manufacture, health, nutrition and safety.

How you are taught

The course is comprised of taught modules and as part of your studies you will have the opportunity to choose from a range of optional modules in a range of years. This enables you to select topics that are of most interest to you.

Additionally, you will complete a year-long research project during your final year. The research project encourages and develops your critical thinking. You will conduct independent research – including a literature survey using the library with access to e-journals – and undertake data handling, analysis and interpretation. You will carry out your project under the supervision of a research-active member of academic staff, and benefit from the supportive environment we provide.
