While focusing on plants but much of the content is applicable to both plants and animals. The Problem Based Approach for learning in this course makes the educational experience practical and applied, helping you to understand, absorb and retain your new knowledge.
Student Comment: 'Having not finished high school myself and never studied biochemistry my confidence is a little low but the encouragement I am receiving from Honor [tutor] is a tremendous help and making it easier for me as I go. [The course] is helping me realize what I am actually capable of and that I am smarter than I thought. Thank you for making it possible for me to study my passion while still being able to work.'
