The course is assessed by a mixture of written examinations (usually 90%, taking place in May/June) and coursework, typically involving written exercises, short projects and computer practicals. Please note that not all optional modules may be available.
The summer research skills project involves working closely with a research supervisor to produce a substantial dissertation and an oral presentation. Additional assessment will require participation in problem-solving workshops and peer group learning in order to prepare you for ‘real life’ work as a research scientist.
Please note: The modules listed on the website for this programme are regularly reviewed to ensure they are up-to-date and informed by the latest research and teaching methods.
