Similar to our Human Biology course, this course aims to examine the human body and how it works, as well as review how it is interpreted across the world. By combining all of this information together, you will be able to use it to better take care of yourselves – and others - but more importantly ensure you benefit from lasting health and vitality.
Our course covers everything – skeletons, muscles, and the chemistry of life – giving you the freedom to combine your work with your studies, and develop at a pace that is right for you. There is no rush to complete this course, you will receive 12 months’ tutor support.
You will delve into the world of reproduction, respiration, digestion and the nervous system, and offer your employers the reassurance that you are more than equipped to care for their clients.
During this course you will be taught:
• How external elements can affect the body - such as smoking, exercises, contraceptives etc. - and how they can alter natural bodily functions
• How each of our organs works and in turn how they interact with other parts of your body
• How the formation of multiple organs to form systems can help your body to work more effectively
From examining the lymphatic system to exploring your heart and cardiovascular systems; in just 200 hours you can attain a level of knowledge and understanding that will make ALL the difference to your CV and job applications.
You’ll instantly be able to ‘standout’ from the competition, as the breadth and diversity of our Advanced Anatomy modules reveals everything you need to know about the human body. And the best news of all? You need no prior knowledge or experience in this field to sign up.
Simply express an interest, and in no time at all, you can begin learning from the comfort of your own home.
However, if you’re looking for that added ‘edge’, studying our Level 2 Human Anatomy course first can instantly put you streets ahead of other applicants.
From the very start you will be supported by a qualified tutor who will assess, feedback and mark your assignments, whilst remaining accessible throughout the duration of your home studies.
At a click of button, they can assist you with your self-assessment exercises and keep you on track to walking away with a Certificate of Achievement by Quality Licence Scheme.
So whether you’re looking to boost your CV and make your employment opportunities within the nursing and care sectors easier, or you simply have a passion for biology and the human body; register your interest today and at your own pace you can broaden your skills and knowledge set.
The good news is that there is no previous knowledge required to complete this course. However you may wish to study this course as a progression course from the Level 2 Human Anatomy course.
You will be assessed on this course by a number of assignments that will need to be sent to your tutor for marking. Your tutor will provide you with feedback on each of these assignments in order to aid your learning. These Tutor Marked Assignments are they only work that you will be required to send to your tutor. There will also be self-assessment exercises throughout the course but these do not need to be submitted and are purely to help you with your studies.
Successful completion of the above will gain you the Certificate of Achievement from Quality Licence Scheme.
At the end of this course successful learners will receive a Certificate of Achievement from 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 the provider 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 QLS Level 3 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 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’s knowledge and experience of working within the awarding sector enables them 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.

Distance learning is the most flexible and convenient approach to studying. There is no need for you to attend college and, therefore, you can study anytime, any place, anywhere that fits in with your lifestyle. Distance learning programmes are ideal for people who may have a full-time job, or other commitments, that won’t allow them time off to study.
You'll need to be able to commit the required time to your studies. We recommend that you choose a course you think will interest you, and help you to achieve your ambitions. If you would like some advice, or further information, please call our helpline free on 0333 3445 690.
To purchase a course, simply click on the ‘Buy now’ button against your chosen course and follow the on screen instructions. Alternatively if you would prefer to purchase the course over the phone, call 0333 3445 690 and speak to one of our expert course advisors.
The course operates through a study pack and access to your own personal tutor. Once you have chosen your course we will send you your study pack, which you will be required to work through before completing the course.
Depending on the course you have chosen, you will either be required to complete assignments and submit these for marking as the course progresses and/or be required to sit an end exam. The end exam could be in the form of multiple choice questions, or be an invigilated exam at a registered test centre.
Your completed assignments will need to be sent to your tutor for marking/assessment, you will then receive written feedback and guidance. It may be possible to submit your assignments by email, however you will need to check this with your tutor. Please be aware that your assignments will be maintained by NCCHL for moderation and audit purposes.
These requirements will always be listed on the course description page, so please refer to this for details of what is required for each individual course.
Depending on the course you have chosen, and the amount of time you can commit, it could take from 6 weeks to 12 months to complete your course.
The duration of the course is largely down to you though. The beauty of home learning is that it allows you complete flexibility to fit your studies around your lifestyle and other commitments. You can dedicate as much, or as little, time as you want to your studies - no one will be chasing you for your work or asking why you haven’t submitted an assignment.
We do strongly recommend, though, that before you purchase a course you assess your ability to commit the necessary time to completing the course in a timeframe that will not leave you losing your motivation.
We guarantee that you will receive your course materials within 5 days of purchase, but for many courses we would anticipate that you will have to wait no more than 48 hours.
The course materials are always sent to you via a tracked courier service, to ensure that you receive your study pack within our stated period.
The cost is largely dependent on the type of the course. The longer the course is the higher the cost will be, due to the size of the study pack and the nature of the qualification.
All prices are clearly stated on the course description page and will always be displayed prior to you committing to purchase a course.
Please note that there may be additional fees required should your course have an external assessment, such as A Levels, ICB qualifications etc. To clarify, please speak to a course advisor.
You will be allocated your own personal tutor who can be contacted via e-mail, telephone, fax or post for help and advice on any aspect of the course.
Many courses require that you submit work to your tutor during the period of study and your tutor will assess your work and pass comments back to you. Your tutor is available to you as much as you need them.
Please be aware that officially the tutor support provided with the course is for a period of 12 months, although if you need longer let us know and we’ll endeavour to extend that.
All of our courses are accredited, so you need to show that you have acquired the knowledge to pass the course – this may involve sitting an examination, but it depends on the course you have chosen.
Some courses require you to be continually assessed throughout the course, while others may require an end of course exam or assignment (which may be completed at home) to be submitted to your tutor.
Certain types of qualifications, A-levels and GCSEs for example, do require you to sit an invigilated exams at a registered test centre. You will need to organise and pay for the examinations yourself, however full details of what you need to do will be available from the centre who are delivering the qualification.
If in doubt, please email ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’, NCC can then discuss or put you in touch directly with the course provider.
Yes, there are no geographical limits to where you can study.
You just need to be aware that all tutors are based in the UK and work may need to be submitted to them via post, although in most cases e-mail can be used.
Where the course requires that you sit an invigilated exam at a test centre, there are many exam centres outside of the UK. However, we would advise that you check with us before purchasing one of these courses if you want to study from abroad.
All of our courses are accredited and you will receive a certificate upon successful completion of the course.
For more information about this please see the section of the website that details how awarding bodies work and what the different types of qualifications are.
Yes, you can take as many courses as your time allows. But we would recommend that you clearly evaluate how much time you can commit to your courses of study.
The good news is though that if your circumstances change you can always take a break and come back to your studies.
Additionally, discounts are available if you buy more than one course at the same time.
Your work will be marked and feedback returned to you within 12 working days after submission. This is because our tutors are required to provide detailed, considered feedback to our learners that may take a while to formulate. We find that by working this way, our learners actually complete their course in less time, as they rarely need to submit an assignment more than twice.
Whilst it is possible to submit multiple assignments at the same time, we advise that our learners submit only one at a time. We want our learners to develop as they progress through their course, and find this is best achieved when a student embarks on a new module having taken into account tutor feedback from the previous submission.
No, we provide everything you need to pass your course.
Once you have chosen your course, you can either purchase the course online which will enrol you, or you can call our helpline on 0333 3445 690 who will sign you up for the course and arrange to have all your learning materials sent to you.
If, after receiving the course, you decide it isn’t the right course for you, you can simply return the goods within 14 days and we will send your money back in full for the majority of courses (excluding postage and packaging) or you can choose another course that you feel would suit your needs and ambitions better.
Our online courses are completed through our online learning system after receiving login and access instructions. You will not receive any course materials through the post. The paper based version is posted out in a binder to your home or place of work and requires completion of a portfolio of work that is submitted to your tutor for marking.
