Human Anatomy and Physiology is the study of human beings, the structure of our bodies, the way they work and the way in which we are related to other living things. It is much the same thing as Human Biology.

•Course Length - 12 Months
•Award Received - Level 2 Certificate of Achievement by NCFE
•Course Code: UFHL03

Aims of the course
• 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.

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

The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards' Quality Licence Scheme. This means that UK Distance Learning & Publishing has 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 2 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 by UK Distance Learning & Publishing to meet specific learners' and/or employers' requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. ABC Awards' 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.
