    I did human bio, so would be happy to tell you a bit about what that consisted off. As for biomed, what I've heard from a friend who transferred from human bio to biomed, is that although a lot of content was similar/ overlapped, biomed was constantly geared towards medicine... as you may expect. I'm sure someone will be more helpful but feel free to ask about human bio.

    From the looking around that I've done, biomed tends to be almost similar to the scientific content that med students do in their first three years, but with a bit more science heavy content especially in the biochem topics, i.e more chemistry and so understanding on the molecular level. Like human biology, there is also a fair amount of physiology, but I would guess that human biology has more of this, but I don't say this with any knowledge of the human bio course. I would say that both would have a similar range of topics, and the important distinction would be the university you study at, as the actual content can differ slightly between unis and the level of teaching, and I would probably stress the importance of lab work in this, will most certainly differ. So I would recommend looking at individual courses so you can pick out any small differences, but overall I'd say there isn't that much of a difference as they all have similar core topics of biochemistry, physiology and neurology.

    Hi I am confused with the differences between the both, could you explain to me what course differences there are please? Also what university did you go to when you did human biology and what career did you get offered after your degree there?
