Current undergraduates

These pages provide information for current students on courses in the Department of Animal and Plant Sciences.

They cover what you need to know about outline information for modules, student handbooks, exam information and common departmental procedures. This is mainly long-lived information that applies for the whole academic session.

Finding information

Most of the information is organised by Level, but some things apply to everyone (e.g. Information for all Levels).

Need to contact someone?

If you can't find what you're after here, or in the other online resources, try:

  • Your personal tutor: for general academic and pastoral advice and support.
  • Year tutors: for things such as absence from the University, special circumstances, deadline extensions, degree course changes, etc.
  • Module coordinators and teaching staff: for academic questions relating to a specific module.
  • APS Office: for all general enquiries, forms, handbooks, etc.
  • Writers in Residence: available to support students and staff on any aspects of their writing

What's elsewhere online?

The department also uses BLACKBOARD to provide online resources (links on the right).

BLACKBOARD: provides information and resources associated with the specific modules you are doing. This could include lecture slides, reading lists, practice exam questions, and links to TurnItIn for submitting written work.

NEWSLETTER:  Read our current departmental newsletter and check back each month for an update.

Student-Staff Committee

If you want to raise a general issue, or suggest something to improve the way things are done, the Student-Staff Committee is here to represent you. It provides a channel for discussing the ways in which we can provide the best study environment for you. You can raise any issue you wish, and perhaps change things for the benefit of everyone.
