A second class Honours degree (2:2 or above) or equivalent qualification in Immunology or other biological science degree is required for entry onto this programme.
Taught courses are assessed by a combination of continuous assessment and examinations. Continuous assessment comprises of written assignments, workshop reports and oral presentations. All students undertake a research project which is submitted for assessment in the form of a short research thesis. Students also present a short oral presentation on their project.
The programme is taught through a flexible mix of lectures and small group tutorials, practical classes, computer workshops and research tutorials. To enhance presentation skills, students are asked to prepare a topic focused research poster in the workshop components of Profiles of Immunology and Genes and Immunity. There is also an expectation of self-learning, where you will engage with current research literature to enhance your knowledge gained and discussed in taught sessions.
All lecture material is available on MyAberdeen, the University’s Virtual Learning Environment. The programme also involves an extended, hands-on laboratory-based research project, supervised by experienced and research-active academic staff. Much of the teaching on this course is participatory and students are expected to consolidate all taught content by completing related tasks and activities and engaging in independent study in their own time.
