This unit cannot be combined with more than one other BIOL field unit during the degree. Entry into the unit is based on placement availability and selection is competitive based on academic performance in the pre-requisite units of study. Academic performance in any intermediate BIOL units of study may also be considered. The unit is only available in ODD years (2015, 2017), but students may apply for entry into an alternative intermediate field unit in EVEN years.
