            Our Human Biology and Health scheme has been developed to reflect the diverse expertise and research activity of staff within the Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences  at Aberystwyth University and at the same time enhance your career prospects with the our integrated year in industry. The scheme provides you with the opportunity to study a range of biological disciplines including physiology, microbiology, immunology and genetics, coupling these disciplines with the study of human biomechanics and psychology. The curriculum allows you to develop a sound understanding of the main conditions that influence human health and apply the knowledge to industry in the 21st century.  

            Student Satisfaction and Employability Results

            95% of students agreed that staff are good at explaining things (NSS 2020).

            Top 15 in the UK for Teaching Quality and Student Experience for the subject of Biological Sciences (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019)

            98% of our graduates were in work or further study within 6 months, 3% more than Biological Science graduates nationally, (HESA 2018*)

            Overview

            Why study Human and Health Biology at Aberystwyth University??

            • The syllabus of this course with the integrated year in industry is identical to its sister course (C194). However, you will have an additional year of funding to undertake and complete your year in industry. Your work experience must be relevant to this degree and the year is assessed which will count towards your degree grade.
            • Students will have to organise their work experience under the guidance of our Director for Employability. There is no guarantee that the work experience will be paid.?If you cannot obtain a placement you must transfer to its sister course?(C194).
            • During your year in work experience, you will pay a discounted tuition fee of which the information can be found?here.

            Students on this course will be able to explore the specialist areas of Human and Health Biology which include:?

            • Facilities for high-throughput DNA sequencing, proteomics, metabolomics and spectroscopic platforms.
            • Application of psychology to understand the process of behaviour change and its relevance to delay the development of chronic conditions including heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
            • Our modern physiological, biomechanical and psychological equipment including body scanning for bone health and body composition determination, cardiovascular, respiratory and metabolic analysers, high-performance treadmills, cycles and rowers, along with computer-based digital video and a force plate to allow sophisticated analysis of movement.?
            • You will be taught by passionate, engaged, friendly and staff with expertise across the full range of Biological topics.
            • Your academic studies will be bolstered by a wealth of laboratory and field classes which build real scientific skills essential for your future.
            • Our teaching and E-learning facilities provide you with an outstanding learning experience integrating the classroom sessions and a vast repository of study resources.
            • You will be assigned a personal tutor who can guide you through your time at Aberystwyth and help you to settle in when you first arrive.
            • We have invested heavily and over a number of years in our research facilities, and project students may get the opportunity to work in the research units on Penglais, or in our dedicated research facility at Gogerddan just outside Aberystwyth.
            Our Staff

            The majority of teaching staff at the Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences are qualified to PhD level and are research active. Vocational courses also have staff whose background lies within industry.  The Institute has a large number of research only staff with whom students may have contact.
