While the study of biology is learning about living things, in Human Biology at UEL we focus on how that knowledge is used in society. So this fits well alongside Public Health, in which you’ll study the health of communities, even of entire nations.

Our aim is to help you understand how different populations are affected by disease and how to prevent or at least minimise the consequences.

Your first year of study will feature the four essential subjects – biochemistry; human anatomy and physiology; the understanding of health and health systems; and, finally, an introduction to epidemiology, the study of how, and why, disease occurs in different people.

Your second year will feature subjects such as pharmacology and the biology of disease. You’ll have the chance to take up a year-long work placement and, in your final year, you’ll undertake a major piece of research in either bioscience or health.
