Syllabus /Nominal  Timetable 

School of CrystallographyBirkbeck College

Normally lectures will be made available at the beginning of the week. Week numbers are sequential per term. Each TERM roughly coincides with a particular unit. There will be deviations for a few individual lectures, in order to pace delivery of more difficult subjects. Some "weeks" in Terms 1 and 2 have a release which is intended to be studied over a 2-week period. "Weeks" and "Lectures" in Term 3 are only nominal, as the projects are self-paced.
