iA Level Biology (International A Level)

Your Course at a Glance 

  • Explore a range of topics, from biodiversity to molecules 
  • Study at your own pace 
  • Complete your course online 
  • Gain a recognised international qualification 
  • Progress on to further study or employment 
  • Exam not included 

About Your Course 

There are plenty of professions and higher education establishments around the world that require you to have an A Level in Biology. If you are keen to embark on a career in the scientific field or medical and healthcare industry, or if you are keen to study Biology at degree level, then a qualification in this subject is ideal.  

International and UK-based students can gain a widely recognised Advanced Level qualification in this subject by enrolling on the iA Level Biology course. Taught 100% online, the course is ideal for overseas students looking to enhance their academic portfolio and pursue various career paths. 

The iA Level Biology course will provide learners with essential knowledge in various aspects of Biology, ranging from molecules, biodiversity, conservation, microbiology, respiration, and gene technology.  

You will also delve into health, diet, transport, development, energy, and the environment. The course will also explore coordination and the internal environment. Not only will you learn the topics themselves, but also how they relate to each other. 

Upon completion of the course, learners will have a solid understanding of multiple scientific methods, and how to utilise problem-solving and mathematical skills. You will have confidence in applying different concepts to various problems. 

This iA Level will cover all the major topics in Biology so that you have a strong overview of the subject and the various strands related to it. The knowledge you gain will prepare you for further study, particularly as you will have to use mathematical processes during your studies. 

Getting Started 

As soon as you enrol on your iA Level Biology course, you will be given instant access to our industry-leading online platform. The beauty of online learning is that you can study your qualification from the comfort of your own home and at your own pace. 

learndirect is one of the UK’s leading online learning providers, helping more than 4 million students earn their chosen qualifications. The iA Level Biology is made up of a range of modules, and you will be given access to course materials that will help you navigate your way through the topics covered. 

Once completed, you will achieve an Edexcel academic qualification from Pearson, which is the UK’s largest awarding organisation. As the world’s largest education company, the awarding body will provide you with a qualification that springboards you towards further study or employment.

If you are keen to embark on a career in the scientific field or medical and healthcare industry, or if you are keen to study Biology at degree level, then a qualification in this subject is ideal.  

Pearson Edexcel are the UK's largest awarding body and we are regulated by Ofqual (England), SQA Accreditation (Scotland), CCEA Accreditation (Northern Ireland) and Qualifications Wales (Wales). They offer academic and vocational qualifications that are globally recognised and benchmarked, with educational excellence rooted in names like Edexcel, BTEC, EDI and LCCI.

Once you have achieved your iA Level Biology qualification, you have the opportunity to embark on a range of avenues. You could use your qualification to apply for entry-level jobs in various sectors, such as science, research, medical, and healthcare.  

However, many roles have specific entry requirements, so it is important for you to check these before pursuing the profession, as you may need further qualifications. 

If you want to continue your academic career, then you are eligible for the following: 

  • Degree study – You could apply to study a degree in Biology, Marine Biology, Natural Science, Anatomy, or a related subject 
  • Vocational qualifications – You may want to pursue a BTEC Higher Nationals, or other higher education qualifications 
  • Training – Having an iA Level in Biology could enable you to undertake training programmes in your chosen career field
