The scope of evolutionary biology covers 3.5 billion years or so of the history of life on Earth. Its work utilises the tools of science within the context of the history of scientific investigation and the history of the material investigated. Interpretation arising from the work past and present, itself evolves in the light of new evidence. During the course we shall track some of the many strands of evidence - from the molecular to the ecological - within an historical context, with the aim of gaining some insight into current understanding. Mileposts in our journey will mark innovative ideas and perhaps introduce surprises.

Requirements

Who can book?

Our weekend courses are open to participants over the age of 18 and courses are taught at approximately first-year undergraduate level. No academic qualifications are required and most courses are suitable for students who are new to the subject. Please ensure that you complete any required reading listed in your course materials before the course starts to enable you to fully participate and get the maximum enjoyment out of your course.

English language requirements

If your first language is not English, you will need to satisfy yourself that you have the required near-native command of the language to get the maximum benefit from studying with us.

Accessibility for students with support requirements

We make every effort both to anticipate and to make reasonable adjustments to meet the needs of students with support requirements including those with unseen disabilities, including mental health conditions, and specific learning difficulties, such as dyslexia.

Please ensure you let us know about any support requirements when booking so that we can offer you the support and advice you require before your course starts, enabling a smooth transition to your studies.

If when booking you indicate that you require additional support, you will be sent a Student Additional Requirements Form (SARF) to complete. The form asks for further details about your requirements and support needs, and requests that you submit supporting evidence.

If you have any particular requirements or queries please contact the Disability Liaison team at da@ice.cam.ac.uk
