Course summary

If you're interested in studying the structure and function of the human body alongside elements of sport and exercise science, then this is the course for you. Throughout your degree you will have the opportunity to learn about human anatomy and physiology, the biology of disease, molecular biology, nutrition, sport and exercise physiology and reproduction and development to name but a few areas. The course emphasises the development of practical and employment-relevant skills in our newly opened, state-of-the-art laboratories. You’ll learn how to apply a theoretical scientific knowledge base to real-world problems that are crucial to human health and our sustainable future. The variety of modules you take will help you to build a holistic view of the physiological processes that define human form and function, both at rest and in exercise, and explore the changes that occur during the development of disease. Further to this, you will learn how to evaluate your own scientific data and that of others, by critically discussing research findings using a variety of communication techniques. You will be able to integrate these skills and demonstrate them in written reports and oral presentations. On completion of your degree, you could follow any one of a wide variety of future graduate-entry career paths. Employment areas for Human Biology graduates include those within the NHS or the wider healthcare sector, in sales and marketing of healthcare and diagnostic products, within diagnostic and clinical laboratories, and in research and development for the pharmaceutical, diagnostics, medical devices and laboratory instrumentation industries. Alternatively, you may also choose to continue to further study such as postgraduate medicine or you may choose to study towards a Masters or a PhD.
