Human Anatomy and Physiology is the study of human beings — the structure of our bodies, the way they work and the way in which we are related to other living things.  The more we know about our bodies, and how they work and sometimes do not, the better equipped we are to look after ourselves and maintain our health. With 206 bones and more than 600 muscles in the human body, along with an intricate network of blood vessels, nerves and other integrated systems, the human body is a complex organism.

Many of our student who studies this course go on to be or are already training in Complementary Health Therapy. Whether you are studying to be a reflexologist, a massage therapist, or a yoga instructor, this course will provide a sound understanding of the human body and how it functions.

On this course you will:

  • Increase your understanding of the physical structure of the human body
  • Be enabled to maintain your health better through an improved knowledge of the way your body functions
  • Describe the major structures, systems and organs of the human anatomy
  • Describe the function of the body’s systems and how they operate

Found myself wanting to do more
Michelle Broxton

I was unsure about distance learning because I’d never been that motivated before. But this course was so enjoyable that I found myself wanting to do it, rather than doing it because I felt I had to.

Prompt responses
Marc Williams

It’s very much early days for me however so far, I’ve had prompt responses every time I’ve had a query.

Outstanding learning opportunity
Liz Whitmore

This courses have proved to be an outstanding learning opportunity, probably my best purchase up to yet, amazing.

Can work at my own pace
Jake Harrison

Needed to get a new job, but needed a recognised qualification. The problem was, I couldn’t afford to give up work to do a course. I found Oxbridge online and enrolled on the course pretty easily. I am enjoying the course so far, some modules are harder than others but as there is no set timescales I can work at my own pace and around my current work.

Back on track
Amal Choudhury

Really impressed. My course arrived very quickly and it looks good – looking forward to starting it and getting back on the right track.
