Staffordshire University is the United Kingdom’s Globally Connected Digital University. Situated in the very heart of England, it unites communities in inspirational environments and helps students fulfill their career aspirations.
Human Biology with Pre-med is a UK-based BSc (Honors) degree program that will give you advanced knowledge and practical skills in Human Biology while also supporting you with Pre-med study.
This course is ideal if you are interested in a quality degree program focusing on the fascinating areas of human structure and function, anatomy and physiology, genetics, and biochemistry in relation to human health and well-being. These will be complemented by prerequisite modules such as organic chemistry, math, and physics and an individual laboratory-based research project in the final year. Based in the modern, purpose-built Science Centre, you’ll follow a core program of practical exercises and workshops, supplemented by lecture material and a personalized tutoring program.
This course was designed to allow students who wish to pursue a graduate medical degree in the United States to complete all the prerequisites for their continued medical studies within their UK degree. By studying at Staffordshire University, you will have a recognized undergraduate degree completed in just three years at a fraction of the cost of a US degree. There may also be an opportunity during the third and final year to study and sit for the MCAT to help you plan and prepare for your continued medical studies.
