Students from around the world choose to study at the world-renowned Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification (CAHID), part of the School of Science and Engineering. The teaching of human anatomy is a fundamental part of our courses. We are one of only a handful of universities in the UK using Thiel embalming methods to produce near life like cadavers. You will gain invaluable practical experience.

You will learn from case-active practitioners and become part of a community contributing to ground-breaking changes in forensic anthropology, anatomical knowledge exchange, imaging, and improved surgical procedures.
