6
Common Year One
  • Students on many BSc programmes study together in
    Year 1 of their degree.
  • All students take the same set of subjects,
    before moving on to more specialised programmes
    in Years 2 and 3.

7
Common Year One
  • Biochemistry Genetics/Molecular Biology
  • From Cells to Systems
  • Physiological Systems
  • Fundamentals of Pharmacology
  • Practice of Biomedical Science
  • Lectures (400 students), practicals and
    workshops (60-80 students), tutorials (12-15
    students), personal tutor (6 students)

(lab skills, data presentation, information
databases, ethics)
8
Why have a Common Year One?
  • Delivers core knowledge and skills that are
    needed by all students of biosciences.
  • Allows students to try new subjects (e.g.
    Pharmacology) before committing to a specialised
    programme.

9
World-class research informs our teaching

Focus on seven themes including
  • Neurodegeneration (Parkinsons and Alzheimers
    disease)
  • Regeneration (Spinal cord injury and stroke)

Centre of Human Aerospace Physiological Sciences
10
World-class research informs our teaching
MRC Centre for Developmental Neurobiology
Architecture and function of the central nervous
system
Exploiting use of animal models
  • zebrafish
  • nematode worm
  • Fruit fly
  • Mouse

11
World-class research informs our teaching
Randall Division of Cell Molecular Biophysics
Application of biophysical techniques to
  • Structure and function of muscle
  • Structure and function of Proteins involved in
    allergy and asthma
  • Cell motility
  • Development of new imaging techniques

12
World-class research informs our teaching
At the Waterloo Campus (Franklin-Wilkins Building)
Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences
  • Medicinal chemistry, drug action, drug formulation

Analytical and Environmental Science Division
  • Assessment and impact of environmental toxicants
  • Forensic biology and chemistry
  • Drug testing

13
World-class research informs our teaching
Plus, members of staff from other Schools will
also teach on our course modules
Cardiovascular Division
School of Medicine
Diabetes and Nutritional Sciences Division
and
Institute of Psychiatry
14
Why have a Common Year One?
  • Delivers core knowledge and skills that are
    needed by all students of biosciences.
  • Allows students to try new subjects.this will
    help students select their year two modules (you
    may decide to focus on specific themes e.g
    pharmacology, neuroscience)

15

Graduate entry into medicine and dentistry
  • 82 (18) of Kings students applying for medicine
    or dentistry with a 1st class degree gained a
    place.
  • The 4 students with a 1st class degree who did
    not gain a place all secured interviews.
  • 37 (36) of Kings students applying for medicine
    and dentistry with a 2(i) gained a place.
