Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification
Study human anatomy and forensic science with active practitioners working and researching at the very top of their field
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.
