Oxford will not be offering the Philosophy, Physiology and Psychology course after next year. The University is introducing a degree course in Biomedical Sciences as a replacement.
The medical sciences division, which will be providing the course states on its website, “The course is aimed at motivated students with grounding in science that have an interest in and aptitude for the processes underlying cell and systems biology and neuroscience. The material covered and the style of teaching will suit students who are eager to study how cells, organs and systems function in the human body.”
Students applying to start at Oxford in October 2010 will be the last PPPists, and those currently studying PPP will not be affected by the change.
