Anatomy and Physiology

About the Level 3 Anatomy and Physiology Certificate

The human body works in fascinating ways. With over 200 bones, 600 muscles, and numerous co-dependent systems, there is so much to be learnt. However, even a basic understanding of our bodies can help us to comprehend how they function. This Level 3 distance learning course aims to provide Stonebridge students with a grounding in anatomy and physiology which can work to aid their professional development.

This home learning course is spread out over 14 engaging online modules. Each unit focuses on a specific factor relating to anatomy and physiology. The material covers everything from the skin and the skeletal system to the reproductive system and our individual senses. The online course will take approximately 168 hours to complete, but at Stonebridge College we recommend you move at your own pace.

Who should study this course?

This home study course has been designed for anyone with an interest in how the body works. It is particularly useful for those who work in complementary therapies such as yoga or reflexology, and require a fundamental understanding of anatomy.

As with all of our home study courses here at Stonebridge College, you do not need any prior qualifications in order to enrol. All we ask is that you are able to access our online portal; that you are able to motivate yourself and that you have an interest in human anatomy.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of your qualification, you will have a fundamental understanding of how the human body functions. If you enjoyed studying this human physiology online course, you may decide to take your education to the next level and work towards one of our other courses or even an undergraduate degree.

If you would rather get straight to work, your new anatomical knowledge will help you in a range of fields. One field where it will come in particularly useful is within the complementary therapies. Jobs in this include but are not limited to:

  • Yoga instructor
  • Masseuse
  • Aromatherapist

For more information about this course, give us a call on this number: 0121 392 8288

On completion of your course, you will receive two certificates:

Certificate 1 is issued by Stonebridge Associated Colleges: Anatomy and Physiology Diploma

Certificate 2 is issued by ABC Awards: Level 3 Anatomy and Physiology Certificate of Achievement

At the end of this course successful learners will receive a Certificate of Achievement by ABC Awards and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the details of all the units you have completed as part of your course).

The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards’ Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Stonebridge Associated Colleges have undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet certain quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to an Ofqual regulated qualification but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills towards regulated qualifications in the future. The unit summary can be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this sector. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 3 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of difficulty involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed by Stonebridge Associated Colleges to meet specific learners’ or employers’ requirements. ABC Awards’ endorsement involves a robust and rigorous quality audit by external inspectors to ensure quality is consistently met. A regular review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.
