Mode of Study:
University of Bolton
To be confirmed
The study of the human body is a hugely complex subject, but we’ve designed this professional development programme to benefit you whether you’re relatively new to human anatomy and physiology, or looking to build on your professional experience. Either way, it’s a fast-moving study programme, during which you have the opportunity to progress to a relatively complex level.
You’ll get to study all aspects of the human body, and how it functions. We begin with a detailed study of cells – the body’s building blocks – and work towards organs and organ systems, as well as how everything works together as a unit and gets us through everyday life. Over the course’s duration, you’ll get the opportunity to learn more about the nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, musculo-skeletal, urinary, reproductive and integumentary systems.
Where changes are made to material information contained in this course description or a decision is taken to suspend a course between the offer of admissions and enrolment, we will inform applicants at the earliest possible opportunity and will outline the various options available to the applicant.
Home students starting this course in the first year will be required to pay a Home fee of £800 for the academic year 2021/22.
