Mode of study

All of this module’s study materials are online. Online materials comprise pages of text with images, audio clips, video clips (most with transcripts/subtitles), diagrams, interactive media and animations. Online materials also include links to external resources, online forums and online tutorial rooms.

Tuition strategy

This module provides module-wide and tutor group online learning events. Module-wide tutorials mostly focus on the topic content and support of the Experimental Strand, whilst tutor group tutorials mostly support the assessment and some activities. Although not compulsory, attendance at tutorials will help you consolidate your learning.

Working with others

You’ll work with other students in one or more activities; we’ll assess this.

Practical work

Online experimental investigations and activities are a key part of the module; we’ll assess these. We’ll provide alternative study materials/arrangements if you cannot perform the online experiments to enable you to complete the module.

Mathematical and scientific expressions and notations

You’ll use mathematical and scientific symbols and expressions throughout the module and within assessment.

Diagrams and other visual content

The study materials contain many diagrams, graphs and microscope images. It also uses microscopes and a 3D interactive cell. Reading, interpreting graphs and onscreen microscope images and producing figures is an important part of the study of this module and is assessed. We provide descriptions for some figures.

Finding information

You’ll search for and use third-party material online; this forms part of the assessment. We can provide alternatives for required/assessed research material to enable you to meet the module’s learning outcomes.

Specialist reading material

You might be working with specialist reading material such as articles from the scientific literature. These will be available online.


This module has tutor-marked assignments (TMAs), computer-marked assignments and an end-of-module assessment (EMA) submitted via the online TMA/EMA service.


You’ll receive feedback from your tutor on your submitted Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs) and automated feedback on your submitted interactive computer-marked assignments. This will help you to reflect on your performance. You should refer to it to help you prepare for your next assignment.


We structure modules to a set timetable; you’ll need time-management skills to keep your studies on track. We’ll support you in developing these skills.
