Course summary

The Human Biology with Professional Placement course offers the opportunity to combine an academic degree course with a full year of professional training in a non-University setting. Human biology is crucial to the continual development of the fields of medicine, sports science, nutrition, fertility and other areas. The course builds on the content and structure of the corresponding 3-year BSc Human Biology course, but it includes as a key feature the placement between second and final year. The syllabus promotes the development of a broad and systematic understanding of biological principles, and the skills to place this understanding in the context of the human condition. You will be able to tailor your course to match your own interests and goals, and, in addition to the project in industry, join one of our research groups in the final year to work on a project linked to current research in the School.
