Learning

Outline

Explore the most significant breakthroughs in medicine, pharmacology and agriculture on our thought-provoking Biotechnology and Genetics course. Explore whether the first person who’ll live to 1000 has already been born, the basics of biological science and the controversial protest against natural limitations.

You’ll learn a solid base of knowledge and establish the foundations for further study in the field, considering the role of Biotech and Genetics in modern society and the ethical questions that they raise.

 

 

Teaching methodology

Learning in a small group (no more than 8 students and often fewer) means that you get quality time with your teacher and ask as many questions as you like! Through interactive learning, our teachers will guide you through new concepts and assign you practice tasks to build your knowledge and skills. You will also have an opportunity for group work, independent research, and homework assignments to be discussed in class. Small classes mean everyone gets to have their say, and students learn from debating with one another, as well as from their tutor.

The Experience

It’s all about balance. Study with us at Cambridge and we’ll help you embrace everything the city has to offer – from socialising with new friends with shared interests to field trips and excursions for practical lessons you just can’t learn from a textbook. We understand students. We make sure you’re stimulated with a social calendar that packs it all in, from traditional guided tours of the University museums to a tranquil afternoon punting on the River Cam.

And of course, you’ll experience the true Cambridge way of life from weekly formal dinners to competitive debating and croquet. Remember to save some energy for dancing the night away at a disco!
