The programme features four in-depth modules taught by experienced tutors. During the first term, you will take an Academic English module, together with Human Biology, both of which form the foundation of the programme.

The programme features a variety of assessments including coursework and examinations.
Coursework is in the form of essays, reports or case studies, while group or individual presentations may be required to assess other competencies.
Examinations will be with written elements or multiple-choice questions and maybe unseen or part-seen, where assessment material is released in advance.
The programme offers flexibility in how these assessments are undertaken, and the programmes will utilise online tools where appropriate to deliver assessments. Some assessments may require attendance at a physical location.
The scientific content covers biological systems, environmental influences and a foundation in chemistry, physics and maths. Palpation skills and professionalism are taught predominantly in practical workshops to encourage interactive and hands-on learning.
