LEARNING AND TEACHING METHODS
The programme is delivered via a range of lectures, seminars, tutorials and IT sessions. These are complemented by practical and laboratory activity, which accounts for a significant proportion of the delivery. The emphasis on practical laboratory analysis provides the student with a strong laboratory foundation in a wide range of methodologies and practical skills using state-of-the-art instrumentation.
In addition, the teaching practices are designed to develop the transferable skills expected of a science graduate, particularly with regard to communication and presentation of the results of investigations as well as IT skills.
Assessment methods include exams, assignments, laboratory reports, problem-solving exercises, data analysis, presentations (oral and poster style), literature surveys and project work. The majority of these assessment methods are classed as coursework and many include laboratory or practical elements.
Your career choice very much depends on the degree path chosen after the introductory first year of study. This year is designed to provide the core scientific and mathematical skills required for progression onto one of 13 specified programmes from BSc Applied Chemistry to BSc Biomedical Science.
For further careers information please consult the degree path that would be chosen after completing a year of study on this programme.
