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.
Anatomy is the science that studies the structure and the form of different organisms, including humans, and the relationships of their parts.
You will study structure, from the whole human body, to the tissue, cellular and sub-cellular level, and relate structure to function in the adult and during embryonic development. The anatomy of other species is also considered.
The understanding of anatomy and the different anatomical systems, such as the skeletal, muscular, cardiovascular and nervous systems, and of components, such as muscle cells and neurons, has major repercussions in modern medicine, pathology and in the comprehension of human evolution.
Your theoretical study is underpinned by practical experience, where you can take advantage of our exceptional dissecting room facilities to carry out dissection, histology, cytology and morphometry.
You will spend your third year on a placement with one of our partner organisations in the UK or overseas.
This programme has been accredited by the Society of Biology and is currently the only Anatomical Sciences course in the country to be recognised in this way. Accreditation is awarded to programmes that demonstrate the highest standards in the biosciences and provide graduates with the skills for academic and industry careers.
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 .
