    Hi Tally,

    We hope you had a lovely Christmas break.

    Are you looking at postgraduate or undergraduate courses? If you can confirm which course you are interested in then we'll ask someone from the admissions team for that course to get in contact with you directly.

    We offer a PhD and MSc by Research in Biological Sciences and many undergraduate related courses such as Biology (Molecular and Cellular), Biomedicine and Biochemistry. You can find a full list of courses here:
    http://www.hud.ac.uk/courses/

    Best wishes,

    Hi Tally_12589


    We've been in touch with the Course Leader about your question, apologies it has taken us a little while to get back to you, the answer is really guided by what you choose to do on the course. They have said:

    "Biological Sciences students undertake about 200 hours of fixed laboratory training during the course of a three year undergraduate degree. However, students also undertake a 40 credit (double module) research project of their choice in Final year which if entirely lab based (non-lab based computational and bioinformatic projects are also available) would approximately double this. As students choose their projects they can use this to direct their own laboratory experience and training in final year. However, if a student wants to pursue a research or lab based career we recommend they undertake a one year research placement in industry or research during year 3. This can provide an entire year of laboratory training and expertise in their chosen field of interest giving them a great career boost."

    One of the best things you can do is come to the University to see the facilities and chat to tutors. We have a number of Campus Tours and Open Days coming up http://www.hud.ac.uk/open-days/.

    Or, you can contact the admissions tutor directly, they'd be happy to chat to you on email [email protected] or by phone 01484 473867.

    If we can help further just let us know

    Hi Olivia,

    Sorry we missed your post . How did it go?

    For anyone else who has interviews coming up at the University, then there is a useful guide on our website with lots of handy tips. Don't worry, our interviews aren't too formal and the staff are really friendly and encouraging. The dress code is smart/casual.

    Is there a reading list available for the undergraduate English Literature and Creative Writing course starting in September? If I can, I'd like to start buying required texts now so that I don't have a huge cost all at once, and to make a start on reading some of them.

    Hi tristanoscar


    Apologies for the delay in getting back to you, we're back online now after the Easter break (enough chocolate!).

    We've been in touch with the team in English Lit & Creative Writing and have a reading list for you, as follows:

    BA (Hons) English Literature with Creative Writing:


    For AFE1209 Literary Genres module:

    Homer, (1997) The Odyssey (Robert Fagles, Trans.). London: Penguin. Also available as a kindle edition. Read Books 1, 9-13, 21-24.

    Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights, ed. Beth Newman (Broadview Press, 2007). This edition preferred but others also acceptable.

    Christopher Marlowe, Doctor Faustus, ed. David Scott Kastan (Norton Critical Editions) or Oxford World’s Classics Edition, ed. David Bevington. We will mainly be focussing on the A (1604) text, so please get either of these specific editions.

    Samuel Beckett, Waiting for Godot (1952), in The Plays of Samuel Beckett (Methuen) or The Complete Dramatic Works of Samuel Beckett (Faber and Faber) or any electronic / kindle edition.


    For Creative Writing modules:

    Anderson, L. (2006), Creative Writing: A Workbook with Readings. (Oxfordshire: Routledge).

    We hope this helps and that you enjoy your reading - there's some great titles in there! 😍 📚

    I think the main difference would be that firth point would be within easy walking difference, whereas you would need to bus it in, from Storthes Hall. Have you visited both? Good luck with your decision and studies.

    This is whats causing me the difficulty choosing, i have a friend that is staying in storthes hall but i know that i will be spending a lot of time in the library and also cheaper like you said because i wont have the issue of always trying to get back on buses and what not
