Life Sciences Masters Research Proposal (100C9)
15 credits, Level 7 (Masters)
On this module you will use primary literature to study the background to a biological problem in the fields of genetic manipulation and/or cell biology. You will then devise an experimental strategy by which this problem can be studied, giving details of techniques and resources that will be used to address the problem.
Teaching and assessment
We’re currently reviewing teaching and assessment of our modules in light of the COVID-19 situation. We’ll publish the latest information as soon as possible.
Contact hours and workload
This module is approximately 150 hours of work. This breaks down into about 1 hour of contact time and about 149 hours of independent study. The University may make minor variations to the contact hours for operational reasons, including timetabling requirements.
This module is running in the academic year 2021/22. We also plan to offer it in future academic years. However, there may be changes to this module in response to COVID-19, or due to staff availability, student demand or updates to our curriculum. We’ll make sure to let our applicants know of material changes to modules at the earliest opportunity.
It may not be possible to take some module combinations due to timetabling constraints. The structure of some courses means that the modules you choose first may determine whether later modules are core or optional.
