Good Subject, but content heavy. Reasonably simple to do well in.. just stay up to date with each system and don't try cram this subject.

The staff really ruined this one for me. I didn't like Julia's lecture style or her slides made in MicroSoft Paint. I basically taught myself off the notes and through YouTube tutorials (AK Lectures, Khan Academy, all that jazz...) The tutors (mostly international PHD students) were absolutely useless. Lots of miscommunication, very dismissive, not helpful or informed at all. Fair amount of physics/maths background knowledge required. Content could be interesting, especially for those with anatomy/human bio backgrounds, but it wasn't delivered well. The final exam is quite easy though and you get to choose from a selection of short answer questions so you can work to your strengths.

There is a huge amount of content to remember, but each detail is really interesting - totally worth it if you're willing to do the grunt work. Makes sense of a lot of big body systems interacting. Julia is a great lecturer.

A lot of content, but interesting stuff! The practicals aren't boring, and very interactive such as the electrocardiogram. The final exam weighs 60%, and was pretty hard to cover all the content, but it's doable! Enjoy!
