MRes EVOLUTION AND GENOMICS

Assessment for Year 1

Assessment is varied and comprises essays, literature reviews, analytical assignments, conduct during research, research reports and oral presentations. 

Each module contains several items of summative assessment proceeded by formative work. You complete formative assessments early in all four modules and receive extensive feedback as soon as possible thereafter, so that you are able to act on this when submitting the related summative work. 

Feedback can also take the form of oral discussion and explanation in journal clubs, group meetings, or individual feedback from supervisors, or research team members. Grid-based proformas that provide students with a profile of their individual performance will be employed so that you can see where they have done well and where improvement is required in specific areas. You are also invited to learn through providing and receiving anonymous feedback from peers through online tools (e.g. Turningpoint, DIaNa). 

The results from the Research Project will be written up in a final Dissertation.

Important Information

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, the University will endeavour to consult with students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff. In some cases optional modules can have limited places available and so you may be asked to make additional module choices in the event you do not gain a place on your first choice. Where this is the case, the University will inform students.
