This is the final assessment course for our Understanding the Body programme.

How the assessment course works

The assessment course for Understanding the Body is delivered 100% online.

  • Through a series of tutor-led activities, you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and work through exercises that apply the knowledge you’ve gained in the three previous courses.
  • You’ll then take the final assessment, which covers material from across the programme as a whole.

The assessment course brings together all your learning, helping you understand how all the parts of the body interlink and communicate to work effectively.
