Notes
1. Enrolment in the Pharmacology Laboratory course, PCL471Y1, is limited.
2. The research project courses, PCL472Y1 and PCL474Y1, require the prior consent of an approved supervisor to supervise the project, and departmental approval before enrolment. Student and supervisor must follow the departmental guidelines for evaluation. It is the studentís responsibility to initiate all necessary preparations before the session starts.
3. Enrolment in PCL475Y1 is limited to students with a minimum CGPA of 3.0.
4. PCL476H1 is restricted to students enrolled in the specialist programs offered by the Department of Pharmacology.
