Department of Plant Sciences


At Part II your association with the Department deepens at both academic and social levels. The research project you undertake will introduce you to life in a research rather than a teaching lab. It will bring you into daily contact with the post‐graduate and post‐doctoral researchers; indeed you will find a lot of science going on in the tea room. There is a dedicated computer suite for our Part II students where PCs are available at any time of day. Supervisions are conducted by the lecturer, not a third party. In addition, students facing financial hardship are eligible to apply for support from the Tom ap Rees fund. We are proud of our Part IIs and that's reflected in the support they receive. We also offer enrichment sessions to help you improve the quality of your learning throughout the year.

All learning resources for Part II Plant Sciences are made available through Moodle.

Time Management

Please note that we have organised the timetable so that you will have Tuesday and Thursday free to focus on projects, essays and background reading. You are expected to attend Departmental Seminars held on Thursdays at 1pm.
