Course Summary

The fields of anatomy and developmental biology are closely interlinked. Knowledge of anatomy is important in many areas of biology and medicine, including developmental biology. Similarly, developmental biology tells us much about how normal anatomy is formed and maintained. Understanding the anatomy and development of tissues and organs is essential to the emerging area of tissue repair. You will be taught through a combination of lectures, tutorials, practical work, problem-based learning and computer-assisted learning. In Years 3 and 4, there will be more emphasis on self-directed study and discussion sessions with internationally renowned research scientists. In-course assessment and exams are used in all years of the programmes. Your degree classification will be based on your performance in Years 3 and 4.

Our programmes will appeal to those planning a career in biomedical research or related areas as well as graduate-entry careers in industry, management and the public sector. The broad analytical, scientific and personal skills you gain will equip you for a variety of careers. Previous graduates have been employed in science and in non-science sectors including teaching, marketing, accountancy and policy research. A large proportion of our graduates choose further study before entering successful academic or industry-based research careers.
