You should not usually apply for more than one of the biological and biomedical sciences courses offered by The University of Manchester. 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 are also considered.
Your theoretical study is underpinned by practical experience in our excellent dissecting room facilities.
The understanding of anatomy and the different anatomical systems (e.g. skeletal, muscular, cardiovascular, nervous systems) and components (e.g. muscle cells, neurons) has a major repercussion in modern medicine, pathology and in the comprehension of human evolution.
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 email@example.com
Fees for entry in 2017 have not yet been set. For entry in 2016 the tuition fees were £9,000 per annum for home/EU students, and are expected to increase slightly for 2017 entry.
