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.

How will I learn?

We use a blend of learning and teaching approaches.

In-person teaching includes:

  • lectures
  • tutorials
  • discussion groups
  • workshops
  • laboratory work

This is blended with digital teaching using our virtual learning environment. Here you will find electronic resources, including:

This actively promotes a balance between teacher-directed learning and independent personal study, to enhance your student experience.

In Years 3 and 4, we increase the emphasis on self-directed study and discussion sessions with internationally renowned research scientists.

Career opportunities

The broad analytical, scientific and personal skills you gain on this programme will equip you for a variety of careers.
