Courses available to third-year Medical, Veterinary and Natural Sciences Students
Every year the Faculty Board of Biology organises a Fair to inform second-year students of the options open to them in their third year. In 2012-13 it will be held on
Thursday, 14 March 2013, from 3.15 to 5.00 pm
Many of the subjects mentioned below will be sending representatives of the teaching staff to the Fair, who will be happy to answer any questions.
In making your choice for your third year, it is essential that you consult your Director of Studies. Further details of courses are available from the relevant Department's website. Details of NST courses can be found here.
An enormous range of courses is available in year three. You may take in-depth courses in many of the subjects studied in your first two years; these are offered in the NST Part II courses. Alternatively, you may wish to combine depth with breadth and the opportunity to study new subjects by taking advantage of the broad range of options in NST Biological and Biomedical Sciences (BBS). Finally, you may choose to take courses in something rather different, such as Anthropology, Law, Management Studies or Philosophy.
Affiliated students and students who have transferred to medicine after their first year are normally able to proceed directly to clinical courses after taking MVST Part IB: again, check with your Director of Studies.
Courses available in 2013-14
There are various routes through Neuroscience at Part II level. For an overview, please click here.
3. Another Tripos

You might also consider another Tripos such as Computer Sciences, Engineering, Modern and Medieval Languages, or English if you are suitably qualified. Your Director of Studies, and the Director of Studies at your College in the subject, will be able to advise you.
