Course summary

Anatomy is the study of the structure of the body and the relationship of organs and tissues at a gross (whole organ) and microscopic (histological) level. During your first two years, you'll study modules within the School of Life Sciences. This gives you a solid understanding of physiology, biochemistry and related biomedical sciences. As the degree progresses, you'll develop a sound knowledge of the human body from the early stages of development to adult form. You'll learn full body dissection on our Thiel-embalmed cadavers and understand the practical methods central to anatomy. You'll also investigate an area of research during your own independent project. We were the first UK university to use the Thiel embalming system in our teaching. This method of embalming maintains the fascial layers between anatomical structures, and Thiel cadavers retain a high level of flexibility and colour. It offers a novel and revolutionary experience of working with human material compared to other traditional preservation methods. Our staff are among the most experienced in the UK in the fields of human identification, forensic anthropology, craniofacial identification and the study of the human body.
