Overview

Many aspects of how we understand science has evolved dramatically over the past 100 years. Biological and Chemical Sciences is a course designed to equip our graduates with a wide range of key skills and a knowledge base that are integral to a wide range of differing disciplines within science.

One of the main aims of the course is to ensure our graduates have a good solid understanding of popular areas of science such as microbiology, genetics, cell biology, human physiology and biochemistry/chemistry, whilst developing integral practical skills associated with these areas.

Why choose this course? 

The breadth of the course reflects the blurring of boundaries between the different sciences. The course itself has been designed to provide students with a range of skills and knowledge that is necessary in today’s multidisciplinary community environment.

You will develop your core understanding within the sciences, with a particular focus on the application of fundamental scientific principles within analytical industries. At this level you will also develop a critical appreciation of Biological and Chemical Sciences to enable them to develop practical skills in a range of scenarios;
  • Human Anatomy and Physiology – you will be given an understanding of human physiological and anatomical systems and apply knowledge to complex principles that dictate physiological functions. At this level you will also develop critical analysis of a variety of human systems and the diseases that affect them, which will be underpinned by current research and thinking in these areas;
  • Chemical Composition and Analysis – you will be introduced to fundamentals of inorganic, physical and organic chemistry, electronic structure, bonding and periodicity. This will include examining properties of chemical substances and specifically related to s, p and d-block elements and will look at the underlying principles of carbon chemistry and radiation processes. At this level there will be a major focus on comparing and analysing analytical techniques and applying them to real life case studies, based on organic and inorganic materials;
  • Health & Disease issues – you will be introduced to basic pharmacological principles and drugs used to treat a range of diseases and gain a developed understanding and critical analysis of the complex pathophysiology and aetiological causes of a variety of topical diseases, whilst observing the clinical signs and symptoms used to diagnose these disorders;
  • Cell & Molecular Biology – you will study eukaryotic and prokaryotic cell structure whilst beginning to explore bacterial diversity and emerging antibiotic strains with the application of this knowledge to a number of emerging applications of molecular techniques within the area of gene technology;
  • Project Management – you will gain an applied knowledge of small-scale investigations, integrating some principles of project management and the associated processes. At this level you will also undertake an independent investigative project, using principles of project management and knowledge of health and safety and ethical procedures.


How will this course be taught? 

This course will be taught through a variety of methods – lectures, tutorials, self-directed learning, textbooks, module webs, scenario-based learning sets, professional libraries and resources, journals and case studies, seminars, discussion forums and peer-to-peer learning.

How will I be assessed? 

Assessment will take the form of individual and group coursework, which is vocationally relevant. The wide range of assessment techniques used at CU London will ensure that you have every opportunity to demonstrate your skills and knowledge in full.

We have less examinations and more coursework, presentations and case study based assessments, which try to mimic work placements and employability establishments. Assessments take place during and at the end of each six-week block.

Teaching contact hours 

As a full-time student a normal learning block will mean that you get 18 hours of teaching each week in groups of approximately 25-50 students. Depending on the course you have chosen, you will attend morning (9.00-13.00), afternoon (14.00-18.00) or evening (18.00pm-22.00) sessions. You will also need to attend one two-hour tutorial each week. Part-time students can study on either Saturdays 9.00-18.00 or Sundays 9.00-18.00. Please note that the availability of these different sessions is subject to student numbers.


How will this course enhance my career prospects?

How much does it cost?

Full-time course is: £7,102 per year

For the academic year 2017/18, each six week block will cost £1,775.50. A full academic year is made up of four of these blocks, so this means that a normal full-time year is £7,102. This covers some of your learning materials, access to the CU London Library & Learning Services, all your classes and online tutorials.

The part-time course fee is dependent on how many modules you choose to study in an academic year.

Each stage of the qualification (HNC/HND/Degree) will require you to complete four academic blocks. You can study up to four blocks in one academic year or study at a slower pace (usually three academic blocks per year). Please note if you do study at a slower pace you will need to re-enrol to complete your studies in the next academic year.

For the academic year 2017/18 each block for part-time students will cost £1,775.50. Therefore, the total fee per stage of your qualification if completed in the academic year 2017/18 is: £7,102.

Funding

As a full-time student or part-time student resident in the UK or EU, you can apply for a loan to cover the cost of your tuition fees at CU London from Student Finance England.
