DEPARTMENT OF GENETICS
- Contact: Dr M Segal, Dr C Lindon
- Admin contacts: Secretary to the Head of Department
- Number of places: 38
- Number of research projects: 28
The Department currently offers 28 places on its single subject Part II course, which involves a research project, and a further 10 places on Part II BBS, which involves a dissertation. Both routes are open to NST and MVST students.
We do not currently interview students for places on the Part II Genetics course. We make every effort to accommodate all those students who put Genetics as their first choice, irrespective of their marks in IB, although we reserve the right to investigate the background of students who achieve thirds at Part IB, by contacting their Tutor or DoS to obtain an informal assessment. Students will be asked to indicate their preference for either single subject Genetics, or for Part II BBS, when they make their subject choices.
If single subject Part II Genetics is oversubscribed, students will be offered the option of doing a genetics course via Part II BBS. If both routes are oversubscribed, we will make our selection on the basis of academic performance in Part IA and Part IB.
Any students not placed after this process will be put on a waiting list, and can be offered a place if any students in the initial cohort drop out.
