NS2023: Laboratory Science II

Credits: 15 credits

Length: Continuous throughout academic year

Module Synopsis:

The aim of the laboratory module is to provide you with the skills, competencies and attitudes necessary for a career in science in a laboratory setting. The location and duration varies according to the practical needs of each experimental set-up, however, you will generally be assigned a 4 hour session to complete each laboratory script.
