1st Year Students 2015
Will you be starting a new undergraduate course in UCL Biosciences this September?
For further information, including induction week timetables and joining instructions, please see our Undergraduate Induction Week webpages.
IBSc Pharmacology (UCL Medical Students Only)
The Department of Pharmacology at UCL, was the first pharmacology department to be established in England. Almost from its inception it has been at the forefront of research in pharmacology. We have consistently been ranked in the top category in the HEFCE Research Selectivity Exercise and it is our intention to continue to combine excellence in research with high quality teaching.
What You Will Study
Students must take a minimum of 2.5 units in Pharmacology that include
the compulsory course and a choice of one project.
Core and optional courses in Pharmacology reflect the research interests of the pharmacology teaching staff, and aim to bring students to the frontiers of current knowledge. The emphasis is on critical reading of the scientific literature, and on gaining an understanding of the process of scientific discovery, rather than on amassing factual information. Tutorial work is particularly important at this stage and students are taught to prepare topics for presentation to tutorial groups.
(Please note this is the 2015-16 version which will be updated in the summer. In 2016-17, the minimum mark you must achieve in your 2nd year in order to undertake a laboratory project is 60%. This will be updated in 2016-17 handbook).
