TR060 Junior Sophister Moderatorship Fair 2022/23

Having successfully completed the Freshman years, of the BBS programme, you must now decide on the discipline in which you wish to specialise for your moderatorship. For some of you this will be an easy decision, as you have known from entry the subject you wish to study. For others the choice may be more difficult. However, it is important for all of you to be open-minded and reflect carefully on the broad range of topics presented in the Freshman biology modules.

My strong advice to you is - follow your interests! You will excel in the areas of biology in which you are most interested. Ultimately there are no barriers to careers after one’s honours degree in biology and, as biologists, we move between subjects and areas all the time.

Please read the booklet very carefully before making your moderatorship choices.

Please watch Prof Aine Kelly's video Junior Sophister Options and Prof Andrew Jackson Course Director video Choosing your Moderatorhsip Discipline. You can learn more about each of the moderatorships by viewing their video.
