Lab based study

In Year 1 and Year 2, you will gain skills in laboratory based practical classes. These skills include:

  • good lab practice
  • experimental design
  • microscopy
  • handling cells
  • electrophoresis
  • biomolecule isolation and characterisation.

In the process of developing your laboratory skills, you will also build your range of transferable skills such as report writing, sourcing relevant information, data handling/presentation and teamwork.

This early training will prepare you for advanced laboratory based studies in Year 3 and Year 4, and will equip you with the skills sought by employers and post-graduate study.
