Genetics

Overview

About the Level 4 Genetics Certificate

Our genetics make us who we are. Our hair colour, eye colour, height, weight and individual abilities can all be attributed, at least in some part, to genetics. Nowadays, scientists have even begun to use specific genetic information to identify ways to diagnose, treat and prevent certain illnesses and diseases.

Students who study genetics to a high level are likely to open many door for themselves, and this distance learning course is the perfect place to start. Our students will embark on modules which focus on subjects such as variation, randomness, adaptation and vulnerability. This knowledge will provide students with a good grounding for further study.

Who should study this course?

This learndirect course has been specifically tailored towards those interested in studying genetics at a higher level. It is also suitable for those who already work in the healthcare sector and want to broaden their understanding of human genetics.

This home study qualification is suitable for those who have no prior knowledge of genetics. This means that there are no prerequisites to worry about before enrolling. All we ask is that our students have a way to access our online course materials.

What happens after the course?

By the end of this home learning programme, students will have a basic understanding what genetics are and how they affect us. After graduating from learndirect, student may decide to embark on further distance learning courses, or even progress to university.

If learners continue studying genetics to an advanced level, they will have a world of opportunities at their doorstep. Those with knowledge in this area could find work in the following job roles:

  • Geneticist
  • Researcher
  • Lecturer
