Higher Human Biology (Evening)

This course aims to provide successful performance in the Higher Human Biology National Course.

Higher Human Biology will build on your previous biological knowledge in the areas of the cell, genetics, body systems, behaviour and the environment. The structure and function of many areas in the Human Body are studied in detail.

We would ask you to fill out your application form as fully as possible to help us in the process of selecting candidates for interview. Please list any subject(s) you wish to study on the application form and provide details of all your qualifications, including any that are still pending.

If English is not your first language, for study at SCQF level 6 you must be able to demonstrate English language skills at that level (e.g. SQA Higher level or IELTS 6). 

Course content

Candidates will gain a competence and confidence in applying biological techniques, experimental work and laboratory report writing.

Entry requirements (minimum)

For SCQF 6 subjects (Higher) we require an A or B pass at National 5 or A or B at Intermediate 2 in Biology.

Due to the high level of challenge presented by National Courses, and the significant demand for this programme, please note that the above represents minimum entry requirements. Our selection processes will also take into account the breadth of subjects studied previously.

Selection Process 

Progression routes
