ANATOMY II (HUMAN) BSC112

Learn about the structure of the Anatomy of the human body, through home studies.

  • An in depth foundation course 1st year college or university level
  • For anyone working in health, fitness, sport, health or wellness industries who wants to go beyond the basics that might be covered in introductory courses such as a fitness leader certificate or health assistant certificate.
  • Through a heightened understanding of anatomy, you understand the body in greater depth and improve your capacity to work in any of these industries.

Human anatomy is the study of structure and its relation to function in the human body. Topics covered include surface, regional, systemic, and radiographic anatomy, plus cytology. This course assumes a basic understanding of anatomy, and is an ideal follow on from Human Anatomy and Physiology BSC101.

BOTANY I - PLANT PHYSIOLOGY AND TAXONOMY BSC104

Home Studies - Botany Course -

Study plants to learn about plant physiology and taxonomy.

  • 100 hour introduction to plant physiology and taxonomy
  • general botany including morphology and anatomy
  • enhance career opportunities in anything from horticulture and environmental management to teaching and science.

BOTANY II - APPLIED PLANT PHYSIOLOGY BSC204

Understand the principles and practices of plant physiology and their practical applications.

 

This course is concerned with the structure of plants and the way in which structures develop throughout a plants life from one stage of growth to the next. These stages include juvenility, maturity, flowering and seeding. Plant development involves differentiation of the plant into specialised parts. This may include visible changes such as the structural organisation of the plant and new patterns of growth as well as less visible changes such as localised biochemical and metabolic activity.

CELL BIOLOGY BSC110

Working or wanting to work in Applied Biology?

An understanding of cell biology is important in many areas of study, for the cell is the building block of all living forms.

Student Comment: "the course was better than I expected" "I am studying a Bachelor of Health Science next year at university. I gained far more knowledge from this course than I expected." J.McEwan

PHYSIOLOGY II BSC111

An advanced course on human physiology that will develop further your understanding of the principles of physiology, examining functions of the cells, tissues and systems of the human body. The course details how our bodies maintain internal equilibrium and health while exposed to the most variable range of conditions, such as physical, psychological and environmental factors.
A course designed for health therapists and all those working in health care that want or need to develop a deeper understanding of the human body processes and health maintenance.

Prerequisite: Human Anatomy & Physiology BSC101 or equivalent.
