Unique and popular modular structure where six academics deliver six topics using a mixture of plenary lectures on a subject of cutting edge research of their choice, background science lectures, practicals, interactive session (e.g. group discussions) and quizzes.
As well as covering topical research issues, you will acquire fundamental biology knowledge and skills helping you to understand how plants and soil microbes grow and interact in soils.
There will be five practicals which contribute 50% of the course mark, and an exam of short, structured questions.
|Session||Second Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
1st Attempt: 1 two-hour written exam (50%); continuous assessment (50%).
Formative assessment are provided in each module to help students assess how well they are learning the course material. It is anticipated that two of these will be delivered online where student participation in these tests will be monitored and contribute to retention of the class certificate.
