Pathology & Disease
Rigorous external assessment is provided through completion of the comprehensive assignments sets, with high standards of tutor marking. The course certification is equivalent to a UK vocational A-Level or NVQ Level 4 and will provide you with a solid foundation should you wish to undertake further study.
The course certification is widely accepted, recommended and used by many schools, colleges and individuals as part of their integrated training programmes.
If you have further education in mind we recommend that you check with your college to make sure our course is recognised for the necessary high standards. We are happy to help in this respect.
There are 6 - 8 tutor assessed activities at the end of each unit that you send to your tutor by post or e-mail along with the non-tutor assessed activities. The assessed activities are marked and returned to you.
To complete this distance learning course you have to attain a passing grade in each of the activities. You will then be awarded The School of Health's Diploma in Pathology & Disease Diploma.
