Your third year in Cambridge is the time when you can study in depth an aspect of biological science which interests you. It is often difficult to decide which particular topic you wish to study, and it is worthwhile talking to present third year students to find out how they enjoy the courses they are taking. The names and colleges of the current third year students are on the Undergraduate notice board in the Department of Pathology.
For Medical and Veterinary students, this is the opportunity to learn about topics which are both scientifically interesting and relevant to your future career. For Natural Science students, Single Subject Pathology offers not only an intellectually satisfying course but also a good training in research.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask staff in the IB practical classes or to contact the Part II Option Organisers. Question and answer sessions are organised in early March and are advertised widely close to this time. These will be held in the Department of Pathology and the option organisers will be available to answer your questions about the courses.
