What separates man and the animal and plant kingdoms from other objects or "things" that exist on our planet? It's a one word answer: LIFE.
And what determines life? This is the fundamental object behind the study of Zoology. Whether you are able to answer that question or not at this stage, learning about the building blocks of life (genetics) and how they are combined or contrived to make a human being, a turtle or a tree is absolutely fascinating.
If you're one of those who are drawn to the "big questions" surrounding the issue of life and living things, then this is undoubtedly the course for you.

Q.Hi. I am fascinated by the animal kingdom and want to undertake this course. Could you tell me what formats the course materials are in? I have a physical disability and have spiral bound books, and audio books for my Open University courses. Also, are you able to help with the funding for this course? Many thanks Sarah Jayne Davies MSc
A.Thank you for contacting My Distance Learning College Sarah. If you select the 'Online Only' option, your course materials can be downloaded as a PDF file. However if you select 'Hard Copy' you will receive a folder with all your course materials in there, plus the online version. We are not able to fund any courses I'm afraid.
