Entry requirements

The course is aimed at students who have studied some basic anatomy within their first degree, for example: medical doctors, allied health professionals, nurses, midwives, other health related professionals, graduates in biology, cell biology, biomedical science, sports science, medical illustrators etc. Candidates should normally have a first or second-class honours degree in a relevant subject and/or recognised professional qualification.

For students whose first language is not English, evidence will normally* be required of successful completion of an English Language qualification such as IELTS (minimum 6.5 with at least 6 in each sub-test). All applications are assessed on an individual basis. Applicants should ensure that their personal statements identify why they wish to study this course.

*In exceptional circumstances, if the school believes a student to be academically strong but has a borderline IELTS (or equivalent) score (e.g. a student with an UK equivalent high first class degree qualification and misses one component of the IELTS by 0.5 in a speaking or listening section), the applicant may be interviewed by the academic from both the School and the Language Centre. If the student is successful in the interview they maybe considered for entry.

Course content

The certificate is designed to allow choice and foster personal development. Plenty of opportunity will be given to students to develop their skills in anatomy and dissections using human cadaveric specimens.

The Postgraduate Certificate in Applied Clinical Anatomy (60 M Level credits) consists of three modules, the two core modules are compulsory; Applied Clinical Anatomy 1 worth 15 M Level credits, and Applied Clinical Anatomy 2 worth 30 M Level credits.

To facilitate ongoing personal development and make up the required 60 Masters Level credits, the student can choose a further optional module related to the aims of the certificate. Students may transfer their credits to an MSc (Health Sciences) or an MSc (Neuromusculoskeletal Healthcare). There are many Master's Level modules available to choose from within the University.
