Why study an Undergraduate Certificate in Human Biology

Written by Endeavour College of Natural Health | 10 June, 2020

Are you fascinated by human biology? Does chemistry and biochemistry intrigue you? Do you want to develop your critical thinking skills? If your answer to these questions is ‘yes’, then our new Undergraduate Certificate in Human Biology might be right for you!

Pathway into a health science degree

The Undergraduate Certificate in Human Biology can act as a pathway directly into Endeavour’s Health Science degrees, to seek credits into another allied health qualification, or to upskill in preparation for new job opportunities. This course has been structed to provide graduates with a well-rounded set of skills which can be applied far beyond the field of study.

Gain a deeper understanding of human biology

The Undergraduate Certificate in Human Biology is a new short course exclusively offered by Endeavour College, which enables students to gain a comprehensive understanding of human biology and provides an opportunity to develop critical thinking skills required for study higher education.

Fee support while studying

This course is being offered as part of the Commonwealth Supported Placement (CSP) scheme, which means that a significant portion of the student fees for this course will be subsidised by the government, and the remaining amount will be paid as a ‘student contribution’ (which can be deferred to FEE-HELP).

A unique study opportunity

Studying this course means taking advantage of this entirely unique opportunity brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic and the surrounding environment. This course offers substantial benefits to students, including significantly reduced course fees, a short course duration, and extra time and flexibility throughout the period of study.

A bit more about the course…

This course is ideal for people who haven’t studied for a while, or people who don’t have a science background and are wanting to enrol in a Health Science degree. It's also suited for people looking to gain a deeper understanding of human biology and communications skills.

The Undergraduate Certificate in Human Biology is a full-time course which is delivered entirely online, over the course of six months. The course is comprised of four subjects, which are all theory-based. These include Foundations of Critical Enquiry (SOCQ1), Human Biological Science 1 (BIOH1), Human Biological Science 2 (BIOH2) and Chemistry and Biochemistry (BIOB1).

Upon graduation, you will have developed a comprehensive understanding of human anatomy, physiology, chemistry, and biochemistry. You will also have gained basic communication and critical thinking skills, which can be used as a powerful tool when seeking employment opportunities after completion after the course.
