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.
What's so good about Human Anatomy at Dundee?
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 a Skills module, 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, either practical or literature based, in one of the following areas:
The research project is normally carried out at the University of Dundee, but there may be opportunities to complete this at your home institution under certain circumstances.
The course is assessed through a variety of formative and summative assessments. Coursework includes practical ‘spot’ tests, essays, practical workbooks and seminar presentations, while examinations at the end of each semester may include multiple choice questions, extended matching questions, short answer questions, essays and practical spot tests. The research project requires production of a dissertation.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
