Do you have family or other responsibilities but want to continue with your education? Perhaps your commitments preclude you from studying for a degree full-time, but would you be able to spread your studies over a longer period than the normal three years? If so, and your ambition is to obtain a qualification in higher education, then part-time study may enable you to achieve this goal. We are now able to offer part-time degree courses in the following subjects:
- Ecology and the Environment
- Molecular Biology
- Medical Biochemistry
- Biomedical Sciences
These follow exactly the same curriculum as the full-time programmes and students graduate with the same title of degree. The only difference is that the degree is normally studied over six years rather than three years. Each year of the full-time programme is divided into two so that the yearly workload which is normally 4 course units (cu), becomes 2cu. Examinations are taken at the end of each year in the course units which have been studied that year, and the normal progression hurdles of 3 out of 4cu applies between the second and third year and between the fourth and fifth year of the six year programme. Admission to part-time programmes is exactly the same as for full-time degrees and identical entry requirements apply. In addition, part-time students will be allocated a Personal Adviser when they start their degree programme, and so receive support and training in transferable skills in the same way as full-time students, but over their six years of study.
