You learn through a mix of formal study, discussion and practical experience. BSc (Hons) First year Core modules Chemistry of Life Cell Structure and Function Principles of Genetics Microbiology and Immunology Skills for Biomedical and Human Biology Sciences Human Physiology Second year Specialisation begins in year two when modules unique to this programme are introduced. Human Anatomy provides an in depth exploration of the human body and its structure with a ‘hands on’ approach to learning. Nutrition examines the nutrient requirements that are essential for health and also introduces the links between nutritional imbalance and disease development and progression. Modules include Molecular Genetics and Proteomics Blood Sciences Clinical Microbiology and Immunology Professional Skills for Biomedical Scientists Molecular Cell Biology Human Anatomy Nutrition Final year You focus on issues of current importance to human biologists. Core modules examine the impact of obesity and an ageing population in Ageing, Obesity and Health, whilst Cellular Pathology focuses on the effects of disease on the systems of the body with input from the NHS pathology services. Optional modules allow study of other topical diseases, their development and treatment. Career development is an important part of the final year and as such you can choose to undertake a work-based placement in an area of your choice or be part of one of our exciting, cutting-edge research teams and undertake a laboratory project, or complete the highly regarded Biology in Education module which includes a school placement.
