During each year of your degree, you will be required to study 120 credits, made up of compulsory and optional modules.
Learning will be facilitated using an approach that includes lectures, laboratory practicals, independent learning and small groups. Whilst the programme will be academically rigorous, there will be support from Personal Academic Mentors who are dedicated to helping you succeed in your studies and future career in science and medicine.
The University calendar runs in teaching blocks. Teaching block one (TB1) runs from September until January and during this block, for this year, you will be taught in a ‘blended’ way. Your teaching will comprise of both face to face, on campus practicals which will be supported by an element of online learning.
Your face-to-face, on campus sessions will be a mixture of:
- Induction activities
- Lab Practicals
- Workshops and Seminars
- Bookable independent study and group work
Your online learning and teaching may include:
- Lectures and other activities available on our online learning platform, Canvas, for self-directed learning
- Academic Mentoring and office hours
- Some facilitated teaching (such as workshops and seminars)
- Practise assessments
Due to the practical, hands on nature of our BSc programmes you will be required to be on campus on occasion. If you are unable to attend campus due to travel restrictions or health then please get in touch with us so we can work with you to try to resolve this and support you in starting your studies at the Medical School.
