Key Features of the Level 3 Certificate:

Please Note:

You will notice that this qualification is called a "Certificate". Since 1st September 2012 it has been impossible to achieve an accredited "Diploma" in Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology from any Government-approved Awarding Organisation. This RQF Level 3 Certificate is now the recognised qualification and the industry norm.

The above graph is collated from 307 genuine customer survey forms.

I enrolled in VTCT both as a refresher course and as insurance for applying for a licensure exam so that I met all necessary requirements. I found that course to be very well done, full of rich knowledge, but easy to digest and complete at your own (see more)
pace. The staff was motivating and helpful throughout the course. Highly recommend it! (show less)

Why take an Online Course in Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology?

Anatomy, physiology and pathology is perfectly suited to online delivery. Because anatomy, physiology and pathology is purely theoretical and requires no hands-on or face-to-face interaction, the whole of the subject can be presented and assessed online. You are not left unsupported - you have unlimited contact with an e-tutor who is there to help, guide and encourage to ensure you reach your individual goals. You also have access to online blogs to communicate with other students.

Home Study

Our online VTCT Level 3 Certificate in Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology requires no classroom attendance. The full interactive tutorial is delivered online, in the comfort of your own home. You can self-study at your own pace and fit your study time around your personal commitments. You do not have to wait for the beginning of the next academic year to start - you can enrol at any time.

Online Delivery

The body systems and the associated pathology covered in our online Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology course can be taken in any order. You can choose the order in which you take them to tailor your study to your own needs. Throughout the anatomy & physiology tutorial you are presented with questions to test your understanding as you progress. The pathology tutorial suggests sites to encourage you to research and provides comprehensive downloads with the "need to know" information about the medical conditions covered. When you have taken a section of either tutorial you can move on to the online assessments.

Online Assessment

Many distance learning courses involve posting assignments to your tutor and then waiting for them to be marked and then returned. This is not the case for our online anatomy, physiology and pathology course. All assessments are taken online and marked immediately. You can therefore progress faster and without any inconvenience. Once you have demonstrated your understanding by passing these online assessments you can take the Final Assessment.

Final Assessment

This is the only part of the course that must be invigilated. If you wish, you can attend our Assessment Centre near Bishops Stortford, Hertfordshire. We will ask you to bring photo ID and you will sit a final invigilated assessment. This contains 2 papers each containing multiple choice questions with a 70% pass mark and, like every other aspect of our Level 3 Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology course, it is delivered online. There is no waiting for weeks for your result – you know immediately. We hold Final Assessments every 8 weeks and so, not only can you enrol at any time, but you have a broad choice as to when you sit your Final Assessment too. The Final Assessment is absolutely nothing to worry about - click here to see why.

If you live outside of the UK or if travelling to our Assessment Centre is problematic for you, we can arrange for you to take your final assessment from the location of your choice. The only requirement is that you do have access to a webcam with both visual and audio functionality. We have software that enables us to invigilate both your surroundings and your screen. Taking your final assessment using this method also means that you are not limited to the final assessment dates shown below, making our course even more accessible and flexible for you!

When is the Final Assessment held?

We have final assessments scheduled throughout the year. The dates for 2019 are: 19th March, 14th May, 23rd July, 3rd September and 5th November. You will be required to meet for refreshments at 10.30am for an 11am start. If you select to take your final assessment from home, we arrange your assessment date to suit you - so you are not tied to the dates listed above.

And the cost of our Anatomy & Physiology online course?

Just £340 (inc VAT) and is fully inclusive of the following:

In short - EVERYTHING you need we provide. And your result is guaranteed! Plus there are no hidden costs whatsoever and you are not required to purchase any other study material.

What happens after I enrol?

We e-mail you with the login details that you use to access the course. You progress through the course at your own pace, supported as required by your e-tutor. Once you have shown your mastery of the subject you elect to sit your final assessment and your VTCT Level 3 Certificate will be sent to you.

Will my PC be able to run the course?

This course is delivered online and so there is a minimum system requirement as set out below. If you are in any doubt we can arrange for you to access the course for a few minutes to test compatibility. We offer full technical support on all our products and this is no exception!
