Laboratory teaching pods
Students in all degree programmes carry out practical experiments in our recently redesigned teaching laboratories. When designing the new labs, we thought about the best way to allow individual laboratory skills to develop yet encourage teamwork.
Working around 'pods' (as we call them), allows students to carry out experiments, chat with each other, swap ideas while at the same time using the computers to access the latest scientific developments.
Lighthouse Field Station
The Lighthouse Field Station is situated on Cromarty firth. The research focuses mainly on sea mammals and sea birds and as well as getting involved in research, students on the Coastal Biodiversity field course work at the station as part of the course.
