In short, you’ll study the anatomy and functions of the human body in sickness and in health.
Along with all your fellow students in your first year, you’ll study physiology, biochemistry, human anatomy, cell biology and genetics to equip you with an excellent all-round grounding.
In year two, you’ll study more advanced areas of biochemistry, physiology, anatomy and histology and be introduced to pharmacology, disease processes and immunology.
At the end of that year, you’ll have the option of a year-long placement in a laboratory away from the University, either in the UK or abroad. This could be in a hospital or research institute or at a food, medical or industrial company.
In your final year, you’ll focus more on diseases of the systems of the body and be able to specialise in optional subjects such as toxicology, exercise or neuropharmacology. You’ll also complete a major research project.
