About the course

Course description

Understanding human anatomy is integral to a wide range of clinical and scientific disciplines including medicine, dentistry, archaeology, forensic science and bioengineering. A reduction in the number of universities nationally and internationally offering training in human anatomy has led to a shortfall in those qualified to work in the fields associated with the discipline.

This course offers the opportunity not only to develop an in-depth understanding of anatomy through cadaveric dissection but also extensive training to become an accredited anatomy teacher.

Student Profile(s)

Annalise Richards

"I've always loved anatomy, and knew this was something I wanted to pursue, the facilities here are fantastic as it's one of few universities offering full cadaveric dissection along with a huge variety of resources, such as plastinated specimens, to aid learning.

"I have absolutely loved the Human Anatomy MSc so far. I have been able to learn in an explorative way through weekly cadaveric dissection, which is a fascinating experience. This course is the first to offer FHEA accreditation which is supported through opportunities to teach level 2 biomedical science students on a weekly basis. By teaching regularly and exploring new learning strategies in weekly tutorials, I have been able to continually improve my pedagogical skills.

"I think it's fantastic having such a small group for this course, I've found learning to be much more engaging, and my peers have become the best group of friends I could hope for."
