Biology Diploma Level 3

Course synopsis
This Ascentis Quality Assured Level 3 Professional Diploma is awarded by Oxford College to all students who complete the course. The course is designed to appeal to anyone looking to gain a new understanding of the subject area, improve their current knowledge or someone with an interest in the Biology field. It will be useful for students wishing to go onto study the subject further at higher/further education.

This course is based on two approaches:
•The concept-led approach which includes study of the laws, theories and models of biology, exploring the practical application of these in both knowledge and with reference to everyday life.
•The context-led approach considers applications of biological knowledge and looks at the underpinning concepts.
This particular course will offer both these approaches in combination, so students will benefit from a 'mixed' approach; this is more appropriate for distance learning students as there is a need for flexibility.

Your tutor will give you various resource sites to visit and there is extra material on the student common room. In addition there are several supporting texts books for this course but again this depends on which approach you are following and which book best suits your individual needs:
