  • This is an accredited course and such approval by the IBMS is seen as one of the quality indicators for the course.The school of pharmacy runs the MPharm programme as well as the biomedical science BSc and staff across the school are drawn from many areas of professional practice and thus their professional experience and expertise feds into the teaching experiences and practices students will experience here.
  • Traditionally built around a training programme for hospital laboratory scientists, course has been developed extensively over the last 20 years and now prepares students for a wide variety of post graduate careers options. Having its roots in hospital laboratory medicine means tat it is focussed on provided a foundation in theory that underpins, disease processes, diagnostics and treatments.
  • Hospital laboratory, research laboratory across the south.
  • Have we got official images for graduation ?
  • 80 per cent of health-science related research rated of international standing and 10 per cent world-leading (UK Research Assessment Exercise, 2008) (Covered in HoS presentation)Research informed teachingMany opportunities to work alongside research staff and students especially in final year project and specialist topic modules.Matteo and GaryRichardJames’
  • Wide range of teaching strategies employed to allow you to demonstrate your potential in as many ways as possible.Also allows for opportunity to develop a wide variety of professional and analytical skills that should hopefully give you an edge in today’s current economic climate.Number of staff have teaching excellence awards.Also have national teaching fellowsAlso have education unit designed to share best teaching practice and innovation across the school.
  • Students v staff end of semester rounders match and picnic
  • Bright new fit for purpose laboratories you will see when you take tour.Micro-labs and general labs and equipment new in 2010
  • Spaces – do these indicate same modulecarries on ?If so could merge cells
  • Does blank mean same ?
