Honours in Experimental Physiology

The Honours course has two components, namely Coursework (PHSL4005) and Research (PHSL4006) delivered in the form of tutorials, seminars and research projects, and its purpose is to introduce students to physiological research. Students carry out research projects under supervision. For admission, the course requires at least a 60% pass in Physiology or a related discipline (e.g. Zoology, Biochemistry, Genetics, at recognised University) at the 3rd year level.
