Statement of achievement
Further develop your knowledge of biochemistry. This course is designed for people working or wishing to work in a human or animal health or science related profession, as practitioner, educator or researcher.
This course will deepen your knowledge of Biochemistry with an emphasis on plants. This is an advanced course in biochemistry that will give you a deep understanding on how life processes work, where living organism obtain their energy and nutrients and how these are processed to renew and develop new living materials. A great course of horticulturalists and those interested in plant biochemical processes.
Biochemistry I (Animal) is an introductory course to biochemistry. This course is similar to Biochemistry I (Plants) with a focus on animal biochemistry. Biochemistry provides the knowledge base for all human and animals health studies
Build the backbone of your career with Biochemistry II. This informative course focuses on the important building blocks of life such as: amino acids, proteins, sugars, polysaccharides, lipids, enzymes, vitamins, homones, RNA and DNA.
The cell is the basic unit of life.
In the Conservation and Environmental Management course the effects of pollution and land degradation are discussed, and taken into consideration for the maintenance of ecosystems and the habitat of plants, marine life and animals.
Do you have an interest in the environment and enjoy science at the same time?
Working in an environmental role gives you the chance to establish a career in an industry that is growing and the chance to give something back to the community by conserving and managing the various ecosystems and life that constitute your local area.
Genetics is important in an array of areas, such as plant science, animal science, nutrition, psychology, child behaviour and many more. This course aims to show you that the discipline of genetics can offer valuable insights to nurses, midwives and health visitors.
An understanding of genetics will be more important as we move into the future, though it can be a difficult topic to understand if you don't have a proper grasp of the fundamentals. Grasping those fundamentals is what this course is all about!
Ecology is the foundation of the life sciences.
The Introduction to Marine Studies course is the perfect platform for your studies if you wish to learn more about marine ecosystems, their inhabitants and the human impact on the marine environment. This course is set up to precede the Marine Studies Intermediate course we offer.
Do you have a keen interest in mariculture?
This course follows on from Marine studies I, extending your knowledge of a wide variety of marine organisms. It works through many types of marine organisms, focusing mostly on those not covered as thoroughly in Marine Studies I (This includes: Protists, Sponges, Marine plants, Cnidarians, Worms, Arthropods, Molluscs, Echinoderms, Non Bony Fish, Selected Bony Fish and selected Marine Mammals).
The Nature Park Management - Introduction course is a foundation course for people who would like to work in nature parks or reserves. In the course you will learn the practical management skills for working in a nature park. This can include soil management and land rehabilitation.
From the Physics course you will have a fundamental understanding of physics, which can allow for further studies into engineering, environmental management and health sciences.
Develops skills to evaluate, describe and explain how physical characteristics of a building and its surrounds have an impact upon the habitability of the building and human health.
Wildlife conservation is something that has been at the forefront of environmental science and sustainability strategies recently; as there is increasing awareness of the pressure we have placed on wildlife to cope in their changing environment and reduction in food availability.
The Wildlife Management course has been designed for students who would like to work in conservation of wildlife and their ecosystems.
