The Biology postgraduate programmes leading to MPhil and PhD degrees are both research-oriented although students are required to take a number of courses. The postgraduate programme was established in 1969 with the introduction of a MSc programme which was replaced by a MPhil programme in 1972. The PhD programme was introduced in 1981.
