You will be able to study a range of modules, some examples of which are listed below. Year 1 Anatomy and Tissue Structure In this module, the anatomy of the human body is explored.
The module begins with an overview of the components of the eleven systems of the human body. The various types of body tissue are examined and their structure-function relationships investigated. Several body systems are explored in detail for example skeletal system, urinary system, integumentary skin system and muscular system.
Biology is the study of life, past and present. The faculty of the College believe that a sound knowledge of biology is essential for understanding the world in which we live, engaging many pressing problems facing humanity, and becoming a part of their eventual solution.

Ayurveda is a science of life, consciousness, and health. Its methods can be used to assess and maintain your own well-being and achieve the ideal mind-body-spirit balance.
Finally, vision and hearing are discussed. In the laboratory, students will investigate blood, with emphasis on staining techniques used in order to identify types of white blood cells.
In workshops, posters are prepared and PowerPoint presentations used to consolidate understanding of lecture material. A laboratory revision session is provided which enables examination of a range of tissues and organs, designed to aid revision of the major topics covered in this module.
Biomedical Science in Practice This module aims to introduce Biomedical Science students to laboratory-based investigations of human health and disease.
Laboratory practical work enables students to investigate Cellular Pathology, Medical Microbiology and Clinical Biochemistry. Students will develop an understanding of how common diseases such as cancer, chronic heart disease and diabetes mellitus develop. Finally, hospital-acquired infection will be explored.
Understanding of several topics on this module will be consolidated during a case study workshop. Biomedicine and Society This module examines how biomedicine links into society.
It initially looks at the historical developments of biomedicine, and key changes that have occurred often as a result of a dramatic change to society such as war.
Students look at how ethics in particular have developed and how thinking and ultimately legislation has evolved in relation to unethical practice. Key ethical principles are explored in relation to both the treatment of humans and animals.
To help understand the role of biomedicine in society the module examines the role of animals in experimentation, the ethics associated with running clinical trials with humans, issues related to contraception and the role the media plays in how society makes sense of developments in health care.
The module has a main weekly lecture but much learning and consolidation of knowledge occurs in smaller seminar groups where students are given the opportunity to share their learning through presentations and debates.
Biotechnology Biotechnology is one of the fastest moving fields in the biosciences. Genetic engineering techniques have allowed the manipulation of microorganisms, plants and animals to produce commercially important compounds, or to have improved characteristics.
This module examines the techniques that are used in genetic manipulation and looks at examples of how the technology has been applied. The practical outcomes of genome sequencing projects and the way in which knowledge of the human genome can be applied to medicine and forensics are also considered.
Practical classes and workshops allow students to perform some of the key techniques for themselves. Cell Structure and Function This module is an introduction to the structure and function of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells.Subsequently however, intellectual curiosity incited me to look at other forms of extreme violence, in individuals this time, and more specifically in serial killers.
To my great surprise (this had never been studied), it emerged that there were a number of similarities between the psychology of the serial killer and that of political.
The primary resource for detailing the path of human evolution will always be fossil specimens. Certainly, the trove of fossils from Africa and Eurasia indicates that, unlike today, more than one species of our family has lived at the same time for most of .
