Learn about the Human Body

An excellent foundation course in both human anatomy and human physiology - a valuable introduction to biological terminology. Students will develop broad knowledge of anatomical structures and the physiological functions which keep the human body alive. 

Primarily students in this course comprehend biological texts to describe, organise and present facts about anatomy and physiology.  This is a great introduction to a fascinating subject. 


What the Course Covers

There are 6 lessons in this module as follows

1. Cells & Tissues

Study the human body at a microscopic level - cells, tissues and membranes. 

2. The Skeleton

Explain features and function of the human skeletal system.  

3. The Muscular System

Become familiar with the complexities of human muscle tissue - form understanding of how structure and function are related.  

4. The Nervous System

The complexities of the nervous system are explained and students explore this amazing system.  

5. Digestion & Excretion

Fundamental in every human biology course.  

6. Physiological Systems

Explore the endocrine and exocrine systems, reproductive systems of males and females, the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. 

Tasks and assignments in the above subjects are designed to assist learners become enquirers. Being an enquirer of biological science involves asking questions to extend thinking, collecting and processing information with the support of your tutors, analysing and evaluating the wealth of resources in this field, and researching and handling data. 



Study when, where and however much you want. For most students, the course can be completed with a total of around 100 hours of study; and a commitment close to that may be needed to achieve desired learning outcomes.

Extra Reading

The following books, available through this web site are relevant supplementary reading for this course

  • Human Biology
  • Aerobic Fitness


Self Assessment Tests are presented throughout the course. These are essentially an automated quiz. When you undertake a "SAT" or "Self Assessment Test", you will be able to see what you got correct, and what was incorrect; and in that way, you can identify your weaknesses.

Assignments are given at the end of each lesson. You should complete this assignment, paying careful attention to follow what is asked of you. It can be just as important to learn to work to specification, as it is to learn about the topic you are studying. Graduates who develop a habit of working to specification, will impress employers, and will be more efficient when self employed.

A Final Exam is offered upon satisfactory completion of all assignments. This is optional. If you choose to apply for and do this exam, you will have the possibility of obtaining a "formal credit" or "Pass Certification" for this course. A fee applies. The exam may be sat under prearranged conditions anywhere in the world. This college will award you a formal transcript, upon successful completion of the exam, as proof of your results.

Recognition and Ethics

This college is a member of the ACS Affiliates Network; a group of colleges from several countries, affiliated with each other through ACS Distance Education. Courses are developed with input from all of these colleges, aspiring to reflect internationally accepted standards and needs.

A strict "No Plagiarism" and "No fraud" policy exists. Assignments are checked for plagiarism, and assignments will not be deemed to have been completed, if work is not your own original creation, and is found to have been copied from elsewhere. If the person doing the course is discovered to be different to the name enrolled, the enrolment and any results will be recorded as invalid and any fees paid will be forfeited.

Refund Policy

A full refund less expenses (up to 15% of fees applied) is provided to anyone wishing to withdraw from a course, within 2 weeks of enrolment. This does not apply after the first assignment has been submitted and marked; or after the two weeks has expired.


We believe that we have an ethical responsibility to make good use of the fees you pay and the time you invest into an education through our college. To this end, our first priority is always your learning. This comes before issues such as formal accreditations, speculative marketing and bureaucratic processes which all too often add considerable costs to the running of colleges, and take resources away from the provision of more valuable services to the student.

This college focuses on facilitating your learning and support to optimise that learning. We recognise that learning is all about improving knowledge and skills in your long term memory. While some colleges may focus on getting you to pass exams, by committing knowledge to short term memory; we understand that such an approach is not true education, and does little to improve your long term career or business prospects.


Why study human biological science? 

The advances in the science are vast and exciting - a place to start your career or get access to further study.  Maybe you're not sure yet of a subject specialism so this is a great way to get an gain introductory level knowledge and a get a flavour for studying biological science via distance education.
