The Anatomy, Developmental & Human Biology BSc degree course enables students to explore how human body is constructed. Students will learn how anatomy has emerged through an analysis of evolution, structure, function, and development. In doing so, they will consider anatomy at the organismal, tissue, cellular and molecular levels. Teaching takes place in lectures, seminars and tutorials and through practical laboratory work. Students will be assessed through a combination of coursework and examinations. This course forms part of the suite of ‘Common Year 1’ courses within the School of Bioscience Education. These comprise: Anatomy, Developmental & Human Biology; Biochemistry; Biomedical Science; Medical Physiology; Molecular Genetics; Neuroscience; Pharmacology. Upon the completion of Year 1, students can then progress through to years 2 and 3 where they can tailor their course of study to focus on those areas that interest them most. Students in year 2 are eligible to study abroad at a selection of international partner universities including Monash (Melbourne) and National University of Singapore. Students are required to take one Anatomy and one Development module to remain on the degree course. While travel and subsistence are the student’s responsibility, fees during study abroad are paid at a reduced rate. In the final year students can conduct advanced experimental laboratory work in areas such as developmental biology, cell biology, stem cell biology or reproductive neuroendocrinology.
