The course has been great, we've had lots of opportunities to go out into the community and speak to people, and improve our employability skills. Then we've had the chance to do a dissection - a full human body dissection. The labs here are just amazing, and that's because of the amount of research that goes on here.
Learning and assessment
In Stage 1 you will acquire and learn to evaluate a broad knowledge of a variety of scientific and healthcare topics, which underpin the BSc in Clinical Science and the MBChB programme at Leeds. You will begin to develop the appropriate attitudes required for autonomous learning.
In Stages 2 and 3 you will be able to select a pathway from core and optional modules according to your personal strengths and career aspirations.
In Stage 2 you will extend your knowledge and understanding in disease processes and the social impact of disease. You will be more reliant on self-directed learning and be introduced to the analysis and synthesis of information. This is assessed in an investigative report.
At stage 3 you will further develop your specialist subject knowledge and analytical skills. You will be able to demonstrate this knowledge and analytical skills in essay-based examinations, a variety of coursework assignments and a substantial critical dissertation.
