Final year programme – Flexible Combined Honours

biosciencesIf you take at least 5 modules in Biological Sciences before your final year, you may wish to do a research project or independent study in your final year of Biological Sciences, choosing from the appropriate type of module:

  • Biosciences Research ProjectBIO3096 (45 credits)
  • Independent Study (Dissertation) (15 credits) – BIO3888B (15 credits)

Your other modules are chosen from the options available that year - see below.

If you have taken very few Biological Sciences modules before your final year (e.g. only 2 or 3 modules) it is best not to do a dissertation, as you will lack sufficient academic breadth or depth in this subject area. In which case you should just choose option modules - see below.

Option modules - examples

  • Frontiers in Molecular Cell BiologyBIO3077 (15 credits)
  • Cellular Basis of ImmunityBIO3078 (15 credits)
  • Molecular Basis of InfectionBIO3079 (15 credits)
  • Cell Biology of Disease - BIO3086 (15 credits)
  • Bioinformatics - BIO3092 (15 credits)

More than 60 credits of biosciences modules can be taken each year within Flexible Combined Honours.
