Teaching Facilities

The lectures delivered in the B.Biomed.Sci. are held in 'high tech' lecture theatres that utilise modern information technology to assist the lecturer in presenting material to students.


Students undertake a range of exciting practical classes during the course of the B.Biomed.Sci. Practical classes are held in purpose built laboratories based in each of the Departments. The laboratories are furnished with modern equipment and many use computer based simulation and other IT technology to deliver a range of attractive practical classes.


The University provides students with access to extensive on-campus library facilities. The libraries hold an comprehensive range of printed books and journals and a large range of electronic resources such as on-line journals and data bases. The B.Biomed.Sci. students primarily utilise the Hargrave-Andrew Library which specialises in biomedicine and other sciences.
