This course examines how the body functions in terms of its physiology, and looks in detail at cellular events, from the developing embryo to the adult. It also studies the impact of disease and genetics on the human in society. The course emphasises the physiological aspects of human biology, and includes modules in neurobiology and human reproduction and development. It also covers the important subjects of cell biology and genetics. There is the opportunity to apply for a one-year placement and learn how to use what you have studied in the workplace. You carry out practical work to support your academic studies using our industrial standard well-equipped laboratories. At the end of each year you carry out a mini-project that applies the skills developed through the year to a human biology case study. You benefit from the research expertise of the course lecturers who are active in our internationally recognised Biomolecular Sciences Research Centre (BMRC).
