Overview

Explore the amazing physiological systems that keep us alive

Physiology is the study of normal function within living things. It examines and explains how organisms, organs and cells carry out the chemical and physical processes that keep us going.

This course, in partnership with the Physiological Society, will take you beneath the surface of three key physiological systems - respiratory, cardiovascular and nervous - allowing you to explore the discipline of physiology.

You will also examine some of the practical uses of physiology and consider the exciting career opportunities available if you study physiology.

The course might be of particular use for 16-19 year olds studying biology and physiology, and considering further studies in these areas on degrees like medicine, dentistry or other healthcare and life sciences. However, we would hope that anyone who enrols on this course would enjoy the learning experience and gain useful knowledge about the human body.
