All Life Sciences degree programmes share common core modules at Level 1 that provide a general introduction to the life sciences through an integrated programme of lectures, tutorials, practical work and field excursions.
At Level 3 you will specialise in the following subject areas:
Through theoretical and practical training students will be exposed to human form and function. Students will conduct whole body dissection down to the level of the skeleton, with particular emphasis on functional and musculo-skeletal anatomy. The programme is unique in the UK in conducting whole-body dissection on cadavers embalmed using the Thiel soft-fix method, which provides life-like preservation of the soft tissues allowing more detailed dissection.
Your honours studies will involve extensive use of scientific literature and the opportunity to attend a regular programme of seminars given by invited speakers from Britain and abroad. You will take four specialised units in Level 4, plus a research project. There will be a choice of subjects including human anatomical variation, musculoskeletal anatomy, human evolution, human variation, and human development.
This specialised fifth year is intended to provide advanced training in subject areas which are germane to current professional requirements, but which are not available collectively at any other institution in the world.
