You should not usually apply for more than one of our biological and biomedical sciences courses. Please contact us for advice if you are planning to do so.
Physiology is the study of function in living systems. This could be in plants and animals, but in Manchester we concentrate on the function of humans and other mammals.
Physiologists work at the level of whole organisms, tissues, cells and now molecules, and we use a wide range of methods in our experiments.
A major challenge to physiologists in this the post-genomic era is to determine the function of the many uncharacterised proteins encoded by the human genome.
This will involve understanding how these proteins influence the activity of cells, tissues and the whole organism in health and disease.
The University runs several open days per year.
We also operate campus tours, which are available most days. These are with a student ambassador who can tell you all about life at The University of Manchester. It may also be possible to meet with admissions staff (subject to staff availability). These tours are open to anybody thinking of applying to us for any of the biological and biomedical sciences. Family and friends are welcome too.
To book, please contact the Admissions Office on tel +44 (0)161 275 5032 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Tuition fees for home/EU students commencing their studies in September 2016 will be £9,000 per annum. Tuition fees for international students will be £20,000 per annum. For general information please see the undergraduate finance pages.
