Online Anatomy & Physiology Training Course

The Online Anatomical & Physiological Knowledge of Body Systems Course is ideal for those who may be looking to progress onto further specialised training, teacher training or wishing to gain a better understanding of the anatomy and physiology. This is essential knowledge for all professionals working within beauty therapy whether that is as a therapist or in training others within beauty therapy. Many advanced courses including those within Aesthetics require a certificate within anatomy and physiology in order to complete advanced training. It is also ideal for those who may have completed practical training courses covering treatment skills within beauty therapy but where their training did not cover deeper theory aspects and they now wish to understand more.

This course is completed online at your own pace, fully supported by comprehensive training manuals and multiple choice theory tests all completed through our online student portal. Retake the tests as often as you need until you achieve the pass mark of 70% for each ensuring you feel confident of your knowledge and understanding. A course tutor is on-hand by email throughout your studies to support you. Study anywhere, anytime to suit you with our Online course.

  • Hair, Skin & Nails
  • Skeletal System
  • Muscular System
  • Nervous System
  • Endocrine System
  • Respiratory System
  • Cardiovascular System
  • Lymphatic System
  • Digestive System

This course is completed entirely as home-study, including online multiple choice theory tests making this an ideal route for those who wish to study flexibly around other commitments. Guided through our Online Student Portal, you will learn the essential knowledge within all aspects of anatomy and physiology. You will have access to support from a tutor by email throughout your studies as required. Learn at your own pace, anywhere and anytime using our online student portal.

Upon completion of the online course, you will receive The Beauty Academy certificate in Anatomical & Physiological Knowledge of Body Systems which is great for demonstrating your advanced theoretical knowledge to progress onto further training, as part of continual professional development (CPD) or just for furthering your understanding when working within beauty therapy as a mobile, home  or salon based therapist to better consult with and provide treatments to your clients.

2. Payment Plan – Courses over £299

Our Deko Finance option is available on all courses, diploma course packages and VTCT qualifications over £299. You have three options – to make repayments either over 12, 24, or 36 months at only 19.9%, all with just a 20% deposit.

A very important point regarding finance options: Many of our students are fairly young and may not have taken out finance before; perhaps they are living with mum/dad or boyfriend/partner and have not had their own name on an electoral roll for at least 3 years. Now, although it may seem a bit harsh it is very true that all finance companies will view your application very critically if any of the above is true. A way around this is to increase your deposit to say 40% but this needs to be done at the outset and not after you have been rejected.

If you feel that any of the above does apply to you then please just have a word with one of our Course Advisors before making an application.

The Deko finance option allows you book and attend your chosen courses with us while making affordable, monthly repayments to spread the cost. You don’t need to wait to book training sessions, you can complete all training as you wish, selecting from our available scheduled dates without delay. This is a great payment choice for those who desire the flexibility to manage studying around work commitments / childcare or even wish to complete their award as soon as possible; but who need the option to spread the cost into more affordable payments, over a longer term.

You can increase your deposit to reduce your payments and you can pay off early if you wish. No hidden fees or charges. The scheme is subject to the usual credit checks etc.
