Practical timetable

The practicals take place in the Department of Physiology, Development & Neuroscience. Practicals usually run from 2-4 pm, but some will extend until 5 pm: check with Mrs. Shelley before you arrange something that might conflict! They are held on either Tuesdays or Thursdays, depending upon which group you are allocated to (A or B).

See the Lecture listings online for details of dates, times and the academics responsible.
