So I haven’t actually said that much about my course yet, so here’s a brief update. I do 4 modules at the moment; Biodiversity, Approaches and Issues in Ecology, Skills for a biologist and Global Environmental Challenges. Some of them are more interesting than others, but all in all a good mix of different subjects. This week I’ve been working on my first summative essay for Ecology about pesticide exposure contributing to susceptibility of the pathogen Nosema. I’ve basically had to read a journal article that has had this as it’s study and write an essay in a style of a current biology news item that the general public would understand, which isn’t easy.
