This course allows you to develop your knowledge in bacteriology, including topics such as such as functional anatomy, observing microbes, antibiotics and clinical microbiology. It is ideal if you wish to “top-up” your existing degree to become a registered Biomedical Scientist, or if you are looking to take a course as part of your continuing professional development.
This module is available on campus “by attendance” only (please note that the distance learning route that is available on our other top up modules is not available for this module).
You will attend the university at the start of the academic year to register and participate in an induction session for Top-up students. You will be shown how to access your university record and Blackboard (the Virtual Learning Environment).
Throughout the duration of the course you will attend the on campus lectures, practicals and group learning sessions or tutorials. Most of these will take place in a condensed 12 week block in the spring term. You will also need to attend examinations which will take place on campus in May. As an example, in the 2016-2017 academic year teaching took place as:
- Lectures between 3pm and 4pm on Mondays in weeks 15 to 17 and 11am to 12noon on Wednesdays in weeks 15 to 25
- Practicals between 10am and 1pm OR 2pm and 5pm on Thursdays in weeks 15 to 19.
Please note that this is for illustrative purposes only. The module is examined via an online quiz, laboratory skills assessment and an examination during the May examination period.
