Course Description

 The course combines lecture-based learning, with tutorials and laboratory practicals, aimed to enhance understanding of laboratory practice, techniques and safety.

In the simulated and wet practical classes the students will begin with the basics of making solutions, buffers etc. and will progress to more complex quantitative assays requiring data generation, interpretation and presentation of results. At all stages in this process the emphasis will be maintained on good safe laboratory practice to build the skills and confidence of individuals.

Throughout the course, several online features will enable further development of skills using tailored elearning approaches.


A laboratory notebook will also be completed throughout the course to encourage good laboratory practice. This will be formatively assessed at the end of the course and feedback given on strengths and weaknesses.
