HonsBSc in Anatomy 

​The one year BSc(Hons) course is aimed at introducing BSc graduates who majored in Anatomy, and persons with Medical and Dental qualifications to the Science of Anatomy and Research Methodology. The course is thus a prelude (and in most cases a prerequisite) to registration for a higher degree (MSc or PhD) in Anatomy or a related discipline.  Enquiries and applications to the BSc(Hons) program to be directed to Dr Karin Baatjes.​ 


​HonsBSc in Morphological Sciences

This one year BSc(Hons) course is aimed at students with no previous background in Anatomy. A relevant BSc degree from a recognised university, with appropriate subjects such as Physiology, Histology, Zoology, Genetics and Microbiology as majors​ is a requirement. This course is a prerequisite to registration for a higher degree (MSc or PhD) in Morphological Sciences or a related discipline. Enquiries and applications to the BSc(Hons) program to be directed to Prof Sanet Kotzé.​ 


MSc and PhD in Anatomy or Morphological Sciences

The Division also offers degree programs for MSc and PhD students. Both programs are research and thesis driven. The MSc program has an obligatory 2-year residency period, and the PhD program a minimum of 3 years and maximum of 5 years residency period. Although the research groups and project leaders endeavour to assist in finding bursaries for MSc and PhD students, this cannot be guaranteed, and all prospective applicants are therefore strongly encouraged to apply for bursaries on their own initiative.

Enquiries and applications to be directed to the various project leaders (see staff page).
