MSc in Human Anatomy

Essential Update

We are committed to offering a high-quality experience to all our students. We are working to minimise the impact of COVID-19, but we have reluctantly decided that we will be unable to offer this programme for entry in 2020.

We anticipate that this degree will be available again for entry in September 2021, but we are not currently in the position to confirm that. Applications for the next intake usually open in October.

This 12 month programme offers a rare opportunity to learn anatomy from dissection, as well as gain experience in teaching human anatomy. This is an ideal stepping stone to a career in anatomy teaching and research.

Our programme aims to improve your theoretical and practical knowledge of human anatomy through an intensive on-campus dissection course, as well as the development and learning of theoretical and practical aspects of teaching anatomy at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
