We’ve come to the end of our Q&A session today. Thank you very much to everyone who took part – I hope we managed to be of assistance and provide the information that you were looking for.
We will hold many more of these virtual open day events over the coming months so please check www.pg.bham.ac.uk now and again to see what we’ve got lined up for the future. If you’d like to visit our campus (in real life!), our next Postgraduate Open Day will take place on Wednesday 22 November 2017. We also run bespoke campus tours throughout term time and Cafés at which you can meet current students.
Please if given admission and the person can not afford the fees. Are the scholarship scheme by the university for students?
yes there are scholarships
depends whether you are home or overseas, bursaries differ
on the UoB website, there is a big section on funding, I know it isnt easy for many students
How is each module of the MSc Toxicology programme assessed ? How much laboratory work is involved ?
Many of the taught modules have practical work or course work associated and this is assessed and the mark goes towards the module mark. But the main assessment for each module is a written exam. Full details are on the website
I am considering applying for he MSc in Toxicology. How many places are available and how many students study part time ?
We dont have a limit on the numebr of places… well what I mean is that we have found that we have the capacity to take on the students who want to come and have the qualifications. This year we have 23 in the cohort
I dont recall how many are part time, maybe 2-3, not many
What I meant by secure is what is the less riskier ,research or courses ?
Riskier from what point of view?
You should not register if you arent sure that you can complete the course and that you have the necessary skills
The point is that we will do everything we can to support you
But you have to have a good degree
You need to pick the course that YOU WANT to do. Not the one that is less risky!
