  • Objectives
    To increase your understanding of the physical structure of the human body

    To enable you to maintain your health better through an improved knowledge of the way your body functions

    To help you understand the physical and chemical ways in which humans resemble other organisms

    To apply sound scientific principles to the ways in which you obtain and use information

    To enable you to interpret data accurately

    To help you to design investigations and to know how the results can enable you to draw different conclusions

    The main aim though, is for you to enjoy what you are doing. That way you are more likely to try to find out about things and you are then more likely to remember what you have learned!

    Human Anatomy and Physiology is a course whose content is relevant to us all. The more we know about our bodies, and how they work – and sometimes do not – the better equipped we are to look after ourselves and maintain our health.
  • Entry requirements
    Basic English reading and writing skills, as full tutor support is given.
  • Academic Title
    Level 2 Award in Human Anatomy and Physiology plus a UK Open Learning Diploma.

    At the end of this course successful learners will receive a Level 2 NCFE Award certificate of achievement. That means that it is independently accreditedata level of learning equivalent to level 2 on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) for England, Wales and Northern Ireland"
  • Course description

    Course Overview

    Human Anatomy and Physiology is the study of human beings — the structure of our bodies, the way they work (and sometimes go wrong!) and the way in which we are related to other living things. It is much the same thing as Human Biology. However, less emphasis is placed on the importance of comparing human attributes with those of other organisms, and on examining our relationships with them. More emphasis is placed on the physiology of the human body, and the way in which we are able to perceive and react to our environment.

    It is an ideal course for students wishing to study human anatomy and also for those in the fields of caring and medical studies
