Study the Cardiff Microbiology BSc and you will gain fascinating insights into the wealth of organisms that are too small to be seen by the naked eye. These micro-organisms are everywhere and outnumber us human beings by far. After all, we have got more micro-organisms in and on us than actually cells of our own. You will study the benefits which they deliver as well as the harm they do in the medical, environmental and industrial contexts, which will allow you to further understand the crucial relevance of Microbiology as a subject and the value of the work microbiologists do. The Microbiology experts at Cardiff School of Biosciences directly research or collaborate with microbiologists or other subject experts in the UK and around the globe, covering the diversity of micro-organisms in all aspects.
