Biology is in essence the study of life and as such encompasses many academic fields that may be regarded as individual disciplines. For example microbiology, immunology, biochemistry and molecular biology. This modern programme is specifically designed to promote an awareness of the application of biological knowledge to human health and welfare and equip students with the skills necessary to succeed in a continually changing dynamic subject. The Cert HE programme provides a suitable foundation for students wishing to pursue undergraduate health professional programmes whereby human anatomy and physiology shall be studied alongside cell structure and function. Successful students may use their CertHE award as evidence of academic study to apply for a pre-registration programme such as Nursing, Midwifery, Physiotherapy, Social work, Occupational Therapy or Radiography.
