How will I learn?

  • Lectures
  • Tutorials
  • Seminars
  • Laboratory sessions
  • Independent study

You will have the opportunity to undertake challenging independent research projects dealing with questions and issues. Regular research seminars, by our staff and visiting lecturers, bring you the latest issues on a wide range of research topics.

Over the course of your degree, you will participate in a mix of larger lectures to smaller, focused sessions. In the teaching laboratory you will develop the necessary skills to become a professional biologist. We encourage students to publish their results in the scientific literature and make a real contribution to the fields of Biosciences.

We frequently introduce new methods of learning and teaching, including increasing use of interactive computer-based approaches to learning through our virtual learning environment, where the details of all modules are stored in an easily navigable website. You can access detailed information about modules and learning outcomes and interact through activities such as the discussion forums.

Assessment

Your first year does not count towards your final degree classification, but you do have to pass it in order to progress. All marks after your first year count towards your final classification.
Modules are assessed using a variety of methods including essays, exams, presentations, laboratory reports and a dissertation.
