Anatomy and Physiology Course Overview

(Covering the major systems of the Body at Level 3)

Anatomy is the study of the structure of the human body, whilst Physiology is the study of the function of the body. Anatomy and Physiology is an integral aspect of a therapists’ knowledge for professional competent practice.

This course is offered as a self-study option completed at your own pace. Once you have registered, you will be supplied with an Anatomy & Physiology Textbook (Anatomy and Physiology by Helen McGuinness), and an activities workbook.

You will study all systems of the body from the book, and then complete the activities in your workbook. Once completed, this is submitted for marking and you will then be scheduled to take a final written assessment paper.

Our Anatomy and Physiology self study course will provide you with a thorough understanding of the many systems of the human body and how they interact with each other.

We recommend that you complete the course over 8 weeks, but do allow up to 6 months to complete.

We pride ourselves on dedication and support so you will have a tutor accessible via email to give you the guidance to achieve your qualification. Our easy to use self study course has a variety of learning tools so you as an individual will learn from the teaching technique that suits you.

This course is designed to be taken alongside our Facial Electrical, Epilation, Massage or Reflexology courses, if you have not previously completed a course in Anatomy & Physiology at level 3.
