Biochemistry Diploma

  • About This Course

    In this course, you will be introduced to biochemistry, which is the study of the chemical processes which take place in living cells.

    People are sometimes deterred from studying this subject by the thought of the chemistry and physics on which it is based. This course aims to show that it is quite possible to achieve an understanding of some of the fundamental concepts in biochemistry without building on a basis of pure science.

    The approach will be practice related, with an emphasis on selected areas of the subject which can help to improve understanding of the provision of care to patients and clients. No prior knowledge of the subject is assumed.

I was given Criminology for beginners course as a Christmas present, would never have thought of doing it myself but I have enjoyed it so much. It was so easy to do and very hard to put down.

The written report I received after the ...

Great informative course

I have done 3 courses now, 2 on dog grooming and one on human anatomy. All have been at my own speed. The modules allow me to pick it up and do when i have a spare 40 minutes. The end of module questions give me the revision i need to make sure it sunk in. I’m pleased with what I have achieved on these courses and would recommend them.
