90 credits of compulsory modules, 30 credits of optional modules

a It is compulsory to take a field course in the second year. You must select at least one field course module from BIO2436, BIO2442, BIO2443, BIO2444, BIO2448 and BIO2449. BIO2442 is the default free module and may be substituted with BIO2436, BIO2443, BIO2444, BIO2448 or BIO2449. If you are unable to go on a field course, you will be required to take BIO2450 Biosciences Penryn Virtual Field Course instead; BIO2450 is only available if you are not going on the field course.

b You may take either BIO2431 or BIO2437 (you cannot choose more than one module from this group).

c You may not take GEO2449 and LES2002 in the same academic year.
