The MSc in Human Anatomy is a unique Master's programme created in response to the need to provide training in human gross anatomy for those who wish to improve their understanding of the structure and function of the human body, as well as those for whom this is a new area of study. The programme aims to provide expertise for those intending to use the knowledge gained in a learning and teaching environment.
* The programme is the only one of its kind in the UK
* It combines whole body dissection with practicing techniques for the presentation of material for learning and teaching
* Provides an introduction to anatomical preservation and presentation techniques
* Full body dissection of Thiel embalmed (soft fix) cadavers
* Opportunity for self-directed original research
Our reputationThe College of Life Sciences at the University of Dundee was ranked ahead of all other Universities in Scotland and is one of the UK's top 5 universities in the category of Biological Sciences out of 51 Universities.
Staff have international reputations in practice and research.
The award-winning staff of the Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification (CAHID) are amongst the most experienced in the UK in the fields of human identification, forensic anthropology, cranio-facial reconstruction and the study of the human body.

Both semesters 1 and 2 have a strong emphasis on gross anatomy through whole body dissection working in groups of no more than four per cadaver. Semester 1 also has modules in Embryology and Developmental Anatomy and in Anatomical techniques, while semester 2 has modules in Neuroanatomy and in Clinical and Surgical Anatomy Topics.
Semester 3 allows students to focus on an independent and novel research project in one of the following areas:
* Anatomical variation
* The anatomy of a specific region of clinical/surgical interest
* The production of teaching material in the form of (a) prosections, (b) time-lapse video dissection, or (c) display of anatomical teaching material
* An investigation into teaching methods by (a) conducting a survey (e.g. questionnaire, focus group, interviews) or (b) reviewing the literature. The research project will normally be undertaken at the University
First degree in a Life Sciences or related subject: minimum equivalent to upper second class honours.
English Language Requirement: IELTS of 6.5 (or equivalent), if your first language is not English.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom.
