Human physiology is the study of how our body works in health and disease, and is a key component of the scientific basis of medicine. Our approach is integrated, understanding the organs of the body down to the molecular mechanisms within cells. This course gives you an ideal opportunity to train in a medically-orientated field of world-wide importance, and is ideal if you have an interest the medical industries, research, or practice. Throughout your degree you'll consider, through research in academic or clinical settings, what happens when normal physiological mechanisms go wrong, and how conditions such as diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases develop.
You'll also get hands-on experience in taking physiological measurements from human subjects in practical classes. You'll graduate with an understanding of modern human physiology that guarantees an almost endless array of possibilities for careers in biomedicine, and which can be combined with virtually any other area of biological science.

Leeds was an amazing experience, probably the best student city in the UK. There’s no better feeling than whiling away the summers in Hyde Park with a cider and some good mates, and the nightlife is incredible – so many different student nights on, and the taxis are dirt cheap. A great bonding experience for all is The Otley Run – a 21 strong pub crawl that takes you into the city and how I forged some of my best friendships. In terms of the Uni, my course was amazing – loads of detailed lectures, secondary materials and passionate lecturers.
