Year: 1

Status: C

This module introduces students to the principles of fundamental physiology of animals and plants; it provides an introduction to the relationships between organism structures and functions.

Ecology & Biodiversity

Year: 1

Status: C

This module considers concepts of ecology and biodiversity, starting with an introduction to the history of life on earth and moving into the diversity of organisms and their biology in the context of individuals, populations, and the biosphere.

Biochemistry

Year: 1

Status: C

This module is designed to introduce students to the fundamental biochemical pathways, an understanding of which are necessary for the further study of life and health sciences. The structure, function and metabolism of biological macromolecules and the regulation of the pathways involved in their metabolism are discussed in detail

Medical Cell Biology

Year: 1

Status: C

This module will enable students to develop an understanding of the cellular basis of life and the relevance of studies of cell structure and function at the molecular level to human disease. In addition, it will provide a foundation for further studies in genetics, microbiology, histology and biochemistry.

Chemistry in Practice

Year: 1

Status: C

This module introduces general descriptive, physical, organic and inorganic chemistry and the principles underlying chemical properties and reactions of simple organic and inorganic compounds

Year two

Biotechnology

Year: 2

Status: C

This module considers a wide number of aspects and issues in biotechnology, sufficient to underpin and reinforce other topics in life sciences. Topics include production, commercialisation and ethics of biotechnology products and the impact of biotechnology on modern society.

Molecular Biology

Year: 2

Status: C

The module provides in depth coverage of major modern advances in, and resulting from, genomic and post-genomic technologies, relevant to Biological Sciences.

This module is designed to provide a thorough practical knowledge of key molecular biology techniques which are used for study of the genetic basis of human disease.

Veterinary Biology

Year: 2

Status: C

This module introduces students to the principles of animal health and welfare; it provides students with both general and group specific e.g. food-producing, companion, laboratory animal requirements for health. Also, it provides students with theoretical knowledge of biological parameters, vital signs and clinical indicators allowing for animal health assessment and monitoring.

Professional Practice

Year: 2

Status: C

This module will introduce the concepts and requirements of biobusinesses that are necessary to ensure professional conduct in a career in the biosciences. Laboratory management, quality control, data protection, health & safety and scientific communication are covered. This module will facilitate understanding of current professional practice as recognised throughout the varied range of local and national bioscience industries, as well as further developing skills and attributes that will enable graduates to work as biosciences professionals.

Applied Genetics

Year: 2

Status: C

This module considers genetic defects that contribute to human disease with study of recombinant DNA techniques, human inheritance, chromosomal aberrancies and inborn errors of metabolism, carcinogenesis and ageing. Practical experience of contemporary molecular biological techniques is also provided. Advances in molecular genetics and the human genome project are also discussed and provide an appreciation of the potential for improved diagnostics and therapeutics

Microbiology

Year: 2

Status: C

This module provides insight into the major historical events, discoveries, disciplines, activities and relevance of microorganisms to the different areas of human activity. A major goal is to provide a foundation for understanding and learning microbiology as a biological science and its relation to our public health and the environment.

Pathophysiology

Year: 2

Status: C

This module is designed to provide understanding of key concepts in pathology sufficient to underpin further study in the biomedical sciences

Immunology

Year: 2

Status: C

This module is designed to provide students with an understanding of the key concepts in immunology sufficient to underpin further study in the biomedical sciences

Year three

Biology Placement - Diploma in Professional Practice

Status: O

Year: 3

This module is optional

An industrial placement is an optional element of the Biology Honours Degree programme and provides a wide range of opportunities for students to experience work in many different fields of biology including laboratories, education, research and development, quality assurance, etc. Students benefit greatly by completing a placement period and improve their knowledge and practical abilities as well as enhancing their employment prospects.

Diploma in International Academic Studies (DIAS)

Status: O

Year: 3

This module is optional

In this study programme students spend one year in another university, either in a EU country under e.g. the ERASMUS+ schemes or in the USA under the Study USA Iniative (British Council, NI). This exchange experience is designed to provide experience of an educational and cultural environment in an overseas country.

Year four

Current Advances in Biosciences

Year: 4

Status: C

This module involves an in depth study of selected bioscience issues which are the subject of considerable current public policy controversy. Alternative interpretations of related controversial material will be examined and critically evaluated by participants.

Enterprise in Biosciences

Year: 4

Status: C

This module provides opportunities for enterprise and employability skills to be assessed, nurtured and developed within the context of biosciences. Ethical and intellectual property issues in the exploitation of bioscience will also be considered. This module is taught by virtual lectures, seminars and tutorials, and assessed by a group business planning project and individual contributions to creativity, personal development planning, discussion and reflection exercises.

Natural Products

Year: 4

Status: C

The module provides an overview of the varied roles played by naturally occurring organic chemical compounds. The importance of stereochemical features of such compounds is emphasised; means of determining biochemical pathways are illustrated and techniques of isolation, modification and synthesis of biologically significant molecules are described. Lectures, tutorials, directed reading and group activities will be featured.

Investigative project

Year: 4

Status: C

This Investigative Project is an independent piece of work completed by the student, designed to develop key research and transferable skills in a discipline relevant to biomedical sciences/biosciences.

Biology of disease 1 - Infection and immunity

Year: 4

Status: C

This module provides a detailed insight into the interaction between a microbial pathogen and its human host. The interaction between micro-organisms and the immune defence mechanism is highlighted. Consideration is also given to the use of vaccines and chemotherapy to avoid and eliminate infection. The module is taught by a combination of lectures and seminars with online supplementary materials where appropriate

Pharmacology and Evidence-Based Practice

Year: 4

Status: C

This module provides an understanding biomedical pharmacology with an emphasis on development and application of pharmacology in evidence-based practice.

Three New Sample Essays Added

Posted onMay 20, 2012byLeaving Cert History

Three new sample essays have been added to the Northern Ireland 1949-1993 section. The essay titles are as follows:

1. Why did the Sunningdale Agreement fail to achieve power-sharing?

2. Why was the choice of Coleraine as the site for Northern Ireland’s second university controversial?

3. Why were the activities of the Apprentice Boys a source of tension in Derry?

These essays would be of use to both Higher and Ordinary Level students as they cover the three case studies. The essays can be found here –
