It also studies the impact of disease and genetics on the human in society. - Gain a comprehensive understanding of biological principles of anatomy, physiology, cell biology, reproduction, genetics and biochemistry - Develop confidence and ability to engage with exciting current developments at the frontiers of human biology. - Carry out a research project on a topic area that interests you. Human beings are complex and fascinating. In an age when there is so much discovery transforming our approach to medicine, genomics, stem cells and lifestyle, this course offers a real opportunity to have an important impact on the world. **Professional recognition** Graduates of BSc (Honours) Human Biology This programme has been accredited by the Royal Society of Biology following an independent and rigorous assessment. Accredited degree programmes contain a solid academic foundation in biological knowledge and key skills, and prepare graduates to address the needs of employers. The accreditation criteria require evidence that graduates from accredited programmes meet defined sets of learning outcomes, including subject knowledge, technical ability and transferable skills. Graduates from Accredited programmes will receive one year's free membership of the Royal Society of Biology at Associate level. **Work placements** In year three, you have the opportunity to apply your knowledge and skills in the real world with a work placement. This is an important chance to gain the experience and professional skills that can give you the all-important edge at the start of your career. Work experience of any sort helps to attract the attention of future employers. We offer you the opportunity to apply for placements in a wide range of institutions, including the NHS, schools and colleges, industry and medical research. If you are unable to commit to a year, it is also possible to work for a shorter amount of time on placement, such as during the summer. This shorter placement can also contribute to your degree.

    I think Hallam can be a great university, especially if you choose to live in and want a good night life. The only real downside to it is the poor management of timetables, but that may be relevant to my course only.
