- Majors administered by Biochemistry and Pharmacology
A Major consists of 50 points of third year subjects in a defined area. All students enrolled in a BSc or BBiomedicine are required to complete a major. A major may have compulsory (core) subjects and additional subjects chosen from a list of electives. In planning your path to a Major, please pay attention to prerequisites for core and elective subjects. Prerequisites will have to be completed prior to undertaking the major.

This project is only open to students enrolled in the MD course. The MD Research Project (MDRP) represent 56.25 pts of work in years 3 and 4 of the MD course. It is a research project that is examined by written report. In year three, you will identify a supervisor, plan the project and obtain the necessary ethics clearance. In year 4, you will spend half the year carrying out the research project and writing it up.
How to apply
Students can make contact with potential supervisors in the department at any time to discuss the possibility of pursuing an MDRP in their lab.
Laboratories in any of the Departments in the School of Biomedical Sciences may offer projects for the MDRP. These will be adapted from existing projects from within the Research Group.
