This course is designed for students who are planning to enrol in a Diploma or Advanced Diploma course and have little or no background in Human Biology and Chemistry. It also serves as a refresher course for those who have been out of school for an extended period of time. It is offered on campus twice a year and also online throughout the year.
The on-campus course is 5 weeks long. Classes are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30-8:45 PM. Students will be introduced to Human Anatomy and Physiology, Chemistry, History and Philosophy of Natural Therapies, Study skills and Assignment writing skills. The course ends with a discussion on stress management and a course review session.
The same format is followed in the online classes. Live online classes may run up to 8 weeks depending on the timetable. Students can also enrol for the online course and listen to recorded lectures if there are no live online classes available at the time of enrolment. Online live classes broadcast directly from the AIHM classrooms live. Recorded lectures and learning materials can be accessed by students any time once they are enrolled. The lectures will be available to students until a certain date, which usually coincides with the end of term date. If you need an extension period, please contact admin. We will be more than happy to assist you.
It is necessary that the participants in the Bridging Course purchase the Principles of Anatomy and Physiology by Tortora and Derrickson (13th Edition) prior to the commencement date. This is also a compulsory text book for all the Biomedical Sciences subjects of the Diploma and Advanced Diploma courses.
The cost of the Bridging Course is $398.00 and can be paid by cash, credit card or debit card.
