Level II

The level II iSci course (iSci 2A18) is equivalent to 6 half year courses. In second year students will have the opportunity to take more electives than in first year. Additionally, the iSci course will be more research-focused than iSci 1A24.

iSci 2A18 course content is organized around 6-10 week research projects. Each project challenges student with hands-on research problems supported by interactive concept seminars (iConS), labs and field trips. At Level II, research content increases and teaching support adapts to balance curriculum requirements with student inquiry. Each project is supervised by faculty members specialising in that field.

Research Project Topics:

  • Plant-Animal Interactions (Ecology & Statistics)
  • Drug Discovery (Biochemistry)
  • Why Things Happen (Thermodynamics)
  • Neuroscience
  • History of the Earth
  • Enrichment Project
