The course will be tailored to the individual students’ requirements and will include:

  • lectures, workshops, and talks by invited specialists from both the arts and sciences.
  • one-to-one interactive tutorials with staff from DJCAD and the School of Life Sciences.
  • regular progress meetings with module and course leaders.
  • practical tuition in appropriate techniques
  • placement or ‘residency’ in a laboratory or research centre where appropriate (both within the University and beyond)


You'll be assessed using:

  • the realisation of the research proposal and completion of any coursework integral to each module – as agreed with module tutors.
  • coursework may include practical work, placement, written assignments, and oral presentations
  • a final outcome – either in the form of an exhibition, a written thesis, or a public engagement project. This will be assessed by a team of programme tutors and validated by an appointed external examiner.
  • no written examinations
