Human Physiology (CHP207) builds on first year Biology-based units and gives students an understanding of the function of the cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal, renal and nervous systems and their integration and interaction in the human body. Students will learn how to collect and interpret relevant information in order to develop logical ways of dealing with problems associated with the function and control of physiological systems. In addition, students are given the opportunity to develop their analytical, written and computer literacy skills. Human Physiology also includes a practical component which emphasizes and expands on key concepts delivered in the online lecture content and tutorials.

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.
Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.

* The Final WW Date is the final date from which you can withdraw from the unit without academic penalty, however you will still incur a financial liability (refer to How do I withdraw from a unit? for more information).
Unit census dates currently displaying for 2024 are indicative and subject to change. Finalised census dates for 2024 will be available from the 1st October 2023. Note census date cutoff is 11.59pm AEST (AEDT during October to March).

The 2024 Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP) rates are still being finalised by the Government and we will update the domestic fee information as soon as we have more details.
