Course summary

With our human physiology degree, you’ll develop strong theoretical and technical skills in the assessment of human health and disease. You’ll look in-depth at the human body – from the cellular level to the whole person – through specialisms like cell and molecular sciences, neuroscience, exercise and nutritional physiology and cardiovascular science. In our specialist laboratories, you’ll learn how to monitor and scientifically investigate the range of physiological systems our bodies come under when stressed from illness or the environment. Group study brings vital teamwork and communication skills, while in your final year you’ll get the chance to focus and develop your academic interests through an independent piece of laboratory-based research or a dissertation working with one of our expert researchers. FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • Provides up-to-date knowledge and skills in a number of areas in human physiology, with particular emphasis on exercise physiology, neuroscience and cardiovascular science.
  • Our teaching and research laboratories include high-specification teaching and research laboratories include a blood biochemistry laboratory, a new microscopy suite and exercise performance laboratories. You’ll have access to specialist equipment for research in genetics, cell biology, nutrition, orthopaedics and exercise science.
  • We are investing £115m to transform the way we teach in the Faculty of Science and Engineering. Opening in 2023, our new Dalton building will enhance collaboration between students, staff and industry and provide new and improved teaching spaces, including a 200-student capacity ‘super lab’.
  • You will be taught by expert staff who research all aspects of human health and function, with expertise in areas of cardiovascular sciences, musculoskeletal health and neuroscience.
  • You’ll have access to regular online video support, which provides additional explanation and guidance on a range of topics, from coursework and exam paper guidance to lab demonstrations.
