About Human Physiology in Relation to Medicine, BSc - at University of Leeds

Physiology is the discipline that underpins modern medicine and this is reflected in our course. The emphasis of our research led teaching is on how the body copes with the normal demands we place upon it during everyday life.

We also study how body systems go wrong in diseases such as diabetes, obesity, hypertension, and neurodegeneration.

Our approach is an integrative one, ranging from how whole organs work and interact to control body functions, down to the molecular mechanisms operating within cells.

Feedback from graduates is highly positive on this degree course, which has been praised for its choice of modules available and wide variety of topics to choose from for the advanced topics module. This course provides the opportunity to choose topics that interest you the most.

Example comments included:

"The dissertations were beneficial in increasing our transferable skills set."
"Project supervisors gave lots of support."
"Learnt how to critically appraise literature, which will be a highly beneficial skill to have for the future."
