You should not usually apply for more than one of the programmes offered by the School of Biological Sciences. 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.
NB: Due to a change in the organisational restructure of the university, this course as of August 2016 will be in the new School of Biological Sciences within the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health. In the interim period, you will be redirected to the current Faculty of Life Sciences webpages for further details on this course for 2017 entry.
The University runs several open days per year, in which Biological Sciences take part.
The School of Biological Sciences also operates School/campus tours which are available most days. These are with a student ambassador who will can tell you all about the School and 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 Sciences. Family and friends are welcome too.To book, please contact the School of Biological Sciences 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.
