About BSc Applied Anatomy

Anatomy is the study of structure from cell to tissue to whole organism. Applied Anatomy examines structure-function relationships in the context of related subjects such as diagnostic imaging, anatomical pathology and sports medicine. The initial, broad basis of the degree and later specialisation will equip you for a wide variety of careers.

Our teaching philosophy delivers a practical, hands-on and student-centred approach to all aspects of learning. The course will facilitate your journey from school leaver to independent critical thinker and anatomist.

Year one introduces the principles of comparative anatomy and the structure of the major mammalian body systems. Teaching involves dissection and study of human and animal prosected cadaveric specimens. You will choose optional units in related subjects to tailor your degree to your own interests and career aspirations.

Year two allows you to specialise in medical or veterinary anatomy, although both units can be taken concurrently and we encourage you to do so. These units emphasise clinical relevance and application throughout. A dissection unit is an integral part of the second year.

In year three you will follow a seminar-based course in which you will be actively involved in expert-led discussion of the latest anatomical research. The key focus of this year is an original research project, which can be laboratory-based scientific study, clinically related anatomical investigation or anatomically themed educational research. You are encouraged to select a project aligned to your future ambitions and to take a leading role in its direction. Our course in experimental design and statistics will give you all the tools you need to complete your project.

A personal and professional development theme runs through the degree course and equips you with essential transferable skills for future employment.

This course is available for intercalation.
