This innovative one-year taught Masters programme in Human Anatomy provides a solid foundation in human anatomy as a basis for teaching as well as basic and applied research. It considers all aspects of gross anatomy through direct examination focusing on the study of humangross anatomy through direct examination and contextualisation.

The programme aims to provide a thorough understanding of all aspects of human anatomy. It is targeted mainly at those from overseas, especially the Indian subcontinent, who for professional reasons are required to undertake a higher degree in Anatomy prior to taking up an Anatomy teaching appointment. It is also open to individuals from the UK, EU and other countries.


The programme will cover all aspects of human anatomy, including gross anatomy through whole body dissection, human embryology, neuroanatomy, histology and cell biology. There will also be an introduction to anatomical variation and clinical/surgical anatomy. Each student also completes a dissertation or small project.

The programme has been designed to provide a framework within which students can study by considering the theoretical and practical aspects of the subject. It is an attractive option for individuals wishing to improve their knowledge and practical skills in human gross anatomy, particularly with a view to pursuing an academic career in anatomy. Graduates from this programme will be encouraged to undertake further study in the anatomical sciences.

Methods of Assessment:

Written and practical examinations; essays; seminars; presentations; dissertation/thesis.


First degree in a Life Sciences or related subject: minimum equivalent to upper second class honours.
