A year of specialist research training completes this advanced course. Youll pay reduced fees for the year youre on placement. Youll also have regular contact with your tutor and all the support you need from the University. We have a dedicated tutor to help you find a placement, and our Careers Service is on hand to offer support and advice. We teach plant sciences as an experimental science. We concentrate on rapidly advancing areas such as signalling between plants under stress and pathogen attacks, the contribution of plants to the global carbon cycle and global warming. We examine these issues at many levels including the control and regulation of gene expression, developmental physiology, communities and ecosystems.
