Human Biology is an exciting and rapidly developing area of study, involving the application of a range of biological techniques and knowledge to the life-science study of human beings. How is our blood pressure controlled? How are the systems of the body integrated to allow us to live in so many diverse environments? These are the types of questions that Human Biology addresses. The flexibility of this degree means that it appeals to students with many different interests. It will equip you with subject knowledge and transferable skills that you can apply to a range of roles, from clinical perfusion scientist to medical events organiser.
Year 1 introduces the fundamentals of human physiology and anatomy, exercise physiology and nutrition, cell biology and biochemistry. Years 2 and 3 offer a wider range of modules which enable you to focus on physiology, biochemistry and cellular and molecular biology or to broaden your studies by selecting nutrition or exercise science modules. In your final year you can carry out an extended study on a chosen topic. Teaching and learning take place within a lively research environment. Our research feeds directly into our teaching, and there are opportunities to get involved in our research groups, where we explore subjects such as genetic damage caused by radiation and the mechanisms of nicotine addiction. You will be taught in a variety of ways including lectures, practicals and small group work. In the final year you have the opportunity to undertake a professional placement in a clinical or research laboratory. Our strong links with local bioscience organisations and hospitals
