Human Biology (Including Placement Year)

How does the body respond to challenges such as infection? What is the future of stem cell therapies? How does our lifestyle and genes affect our risk of disease? Understand the structure and function of the human body, from the cells and molecules that perform the chemical reactions for life to the mechanisms of disease and how our immune system fights infection. Our BSc Human Biology builds on the foundations of biology to explore the interactions of humans with their environment. You will learn how this has shaped our evolution and looks forward to the exiting new developments at the frontiers of research. You can also undertake a placement year in which you gain relevant work experience within an external business, giving you a competitive edge in the graduate job market and providing you with key contacts within the industry. You will be responsible for finding your placement, but with support and guidance provided by both your department and our Employability and Careers Centre. If you complete a placement year you'll only pay 20% of your usual tuition fee to Essex for that year.
