            Microbiologists study bacteria, fungi, and viruses, and their role in infectious diseases in humans, other animals and plants. You will also learn how microorganisms contribute to environmental nutrient cycling, brewing, food, and biotechnology industries, whilst you develop the scientific and analytical skills demanded in a broad range of professions.

            Here’s why we think Aberystwyth is a great place to study microbiology:

            • Passionate teaching staff that conduct research in all areas of microbiology;
            • Fantastic bio-imaging and microscopy suite, modern laboratories and fermentation facilities;
            • Farms and woodlands for studying environmental microbes and those that impact on animal health.
