Oxford Residential Week
Oxford Residential Week:
You will be required to attend an intensive one-week residential course at St Anne's College, Oxford in the March of Year 2. This is scheduled at the end of the modular teaching and before the start of your research dissertation. St Anne's is also the home of The Centre for Personalised Medicine.
This is an opportunity for you to meet faculty, students and researchers face-to-face, to consolidate your learning from the previous 18 months, to participate in a lively schedule of talks, debates and presentations and to prepare for your own research project. For this we intend to invite a number of expert guest lecturers. These sessions will be recorded and made available online for all enrolled students after the event.
You will also visit the University's famous Examination Schools to sit your third summative assessment, the formal examination. This will be a three hour written paper based on the taught modules. Further details of this assessment will be available in the Course Handbook.
Residential accommodation, food and travel:
The full cost of your accommodation is included in the course fee, together with some of your meals. Further details will be available nearer the time.
The cost of travel expenses to Oxford (up to a maximum value) will be reimbursed following approval by the course director.
