Course Summary

The degree is structured around three main interconnecting themes, namely: 1) Basic human biology 2) Applied biomedical science and 3) Transferable skills. This course will suit you if you are interested in human biology and want to gain an in-depth, scientific understanding of the structure and function of the human body in health and the signs, symptoms and treatment of disease. 

You will study the structure and function of the human body from a ‘molecule to man’ perspective through lectures, tutorials and laboratory classes in cell biology, biochemistry, physiology and anatomy (including dissection). 

In the third and fourth years, a combination of modules which cover the nature, classification, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of disease are taken.
