List of Capstone Modules we have in 2023-2024
Definition: Capstone modules are those that are student driven and involve independent thought, personal management of the work's direction and are synoptic of the programmes learning outcomes. Typically, these modules will have a very small taught component, the major part of assessment is not via sat examination will have little formal contact with staff who will usually be acting as mentors, rather than delivers of information.
The list below comprises of modules which have been agreed to have satisfied the definition above (see notes below.) To map onto these modules you need to have the have taken certain modules in prior years and make the contact with the department in a timely fashion.
|Department||Module name (code)||Credits|
|Biology||Biology into Schools (BIOL3431)||20|
|Biology||Literature Review (BIOL3451)||20|
|Biology||Contemporary Issues in the Biosciences (BIOL3641)||20|

- All BSc students will be required to take no less than 20 credits and no more than 60 Capstone modules from at most two Departments.
- There may be others in which case you are advised to contact the Director of Natural Sciences well in advance of registration in June.
- Entry into: the "Public Engagement"; the "into Schools" modules; Mathematics Teaching (MATH3121) and; is competitive as they all have a cap on student numbers and therefore entry on these modules cannot be guaranteed.
- Until the Faculty Handbooks are normally published in June, we are only able to confirm that those modules offered by Departments which contribute to the Joint-Honours programme, i.e. Groups 1 and 2, will be available.
