Anatomy and Physiology - Advanced

Key Points

  • Gain a deeper understanding of human anatomy and physiology
  • Understand the workings of the heart
  • Learn how the body converts food to energy

 

  • Build on your existing anatomy and physiology knowledge
  • Prepare yourself for further study in biology and medicine
  • Complete your course entirely online

About your Course

This advanced online course in anatomy and physiology will build on your existing knowledge. You will complete the course having gained in depth understanding of workings of the human body.

This will include the main functions of the skeletal system, how joints work, the muscular system and how the spine works.

You will also learn about the metabolism, how food is converted to energy and the principles of cellular energy. Linked to these are dedicated units studying the heart and the brain.

By the time you have completed the course you will have developed a strong understanding of how the primary functions of the human body work. This will be useful if you are considering a career in medicine, physiotherapy or alternative therapies.

Note that this course is designed as a follow on from our basic anatomy and physiology course. While this course touches on some of the information and themes of the other, the material builds on knowledge already gained through earlier study.

Getting Started

This Stonebridge Associated College course has been primarily designed for students who have completed the Level 3 Anatomy and Physiology course who want to expand on their existing knowledge. If students have not completed the Level 3 qualification, we do recommend they do this first.

However, it is worth noting that this is not essential. If students have studied some modules in anatomy before, or they feel confident tackling the higher level distance learning material, then they are welcome to enrol on this human physiology online course.

On successful completion of this anatomy and physiology online home learning course, which is accredited by ABC Awards, you will be sent a certificate for your records. This certificate will prove to possible employers or further education institutions that you have a good grounding in anatomy.

If you want to study anatomy or medicine at a higher level, you should consider progressing on to an Access to Higher Education Diploma (Medicine and Health Care Professions). This could help you to enrol on to a university course.

Stonebridge Associated Colleges is one of the UK’s leading distance learning provider. Our online offering allows you to learn from anywhere. All you need is a computer and an internet connection.

You will also be provided with a dedicated tutor who will provide feedback on your assignments and who can answer any course specific questions you may have.

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

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

Certificate 2 is issued by Quality Licence Scheme: Level 4 Anatomy and Physiology - Advanced Certificate of Achievement

At the end of this course successful learners will be given the option to receive a Certificate of Achievement from the Quality Licence Scheme and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the components the learner has completed as part of the course).

The course has been endorsed under the Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Stonebridge Associated Colleges has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to a regulated qualification* but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills gained. The Learner Unit Summary may be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this subject. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 4 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed Stonebridge Associated Colleges to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. The Quality Licence Scheme endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

The Quality Licence Scheme is part of the Skills and Education Group, a charitable organisation that unites education and skills-orientated organisations that share similar values and objectives. With more than 100 years of collective experience, the Skills and Education Group’s strategic partnerships create opportunities to inform, influence and represent the wider education and skills sector.

The Skills and Education Group also includes two nationally recognised awarding organisations; Skills and Education Group Awards and Skills and Education Group Access. Through our awarding organisations we have developed a reputation for providing high-quality qualifications and assessments for the education and skills sector. We are committed to helping employers, organisations and learners cultivate the relevant skills for learning, skills for employment, and skills for life.

Our knowledge and experience of working within the awarding sector enables us to work with training providers, through the Quality Licence Scheme, to help them develop high-quality courses and/or training programmes for the non-regulated market.

*Regulated qualification refers to those qualifications that are regulated by Ofqual / CCEA / Qualification Wales
