The course will enhance your understanding of how the human body
functions in health and disease at the tissue, cell and molecular
level. This varied and interesting degree course covers a wide range
of biology-based knowledge, laboratory and other practical skills.
If you choose this course you will benefit from:
- An emphasis on human health and disease that is taught by academic
staff who are active in research and consultancy which allows them to
bring this expertise into their teaching
- A focus on acquisition of broad Human Biosciences knowledge and
practical expertise that will be useful in your future career
- Hands-on experience of a wide range of practical techniques such
as gene amplification using PCR, cell culture, flow cytometry, tissue
staining, protein detection and bacterial growth, in modern,
- A focus on student-centred teaching in which you can take part in
mini-projects where you devise and carry out your own laboratory
experiments. This ensures you are able to demonstrate to future
employers that you can act independently and solve problems
- Opportunities for long and short placements in laboratory settings
and in other areas to help you to get the experience that employers
- Use of guest lecturers with current experience in pharmaceutical
sales, as hospital biomedical scientists, and other jobs in science to
help you identify potential careers

benefits our students in such activities as providing specialist
speakers, placements and ultimately finding employment for our
- Experienced teaching staff who bring the professional or research
expertise in to their teaching
The first year of the programme lays the foundation for the study of
Human Biosciences. You will cover key study and research skills in
human biology, cell and microbiology.
In the second year you will further develop your study skills and
research expertise and will begin to specialise a bit more by studying
key areas such as cell biology, molecular genetics, immunology and
The final year of your course gives you the opportunity to carry out
an independent research project linked to one of the key topic areas.
You will also study advanced genetics, microbiology, cancer biology
and clinical physiology in depth.
Through your studies you will develop a good knowledge of a range of
disciplines and how they apply to human health and disease. This will
include both theory and lab-based classes.
