About BSc Applied Anatomy

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 some dissection and study of human and animal prosected cadaveric specimens.

Year two covers detailed medical and veterinary anatomy and allows you to specialise in medical or veterinary anatomy by dissection. Units in the second year emphasise clinical relevance and application throughout.

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 could be a 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 research skills 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.
