Certificate program

Basic Biology has released the beginnings of what is planned to become a multi-tiered certificate program with the primary purpose of giving recognition to the top students of Basic Biology.

Currently, hundreds of thousands of people use basicbiology.net to learn about biology and we feel that the students who are dedicated to learning should be recognized. This will be a great opportunity for anyone wanting to receive recognition for their knowledge of biology and add a handy qualification to their CV.

Studying with Basic Biology and our certificate program offers several benefits including:

  • Elevating your CV to the next level with higher qualifications
  • All studying is 100% free
  • You can study from wherever you are in the world
  • You can study whenever you want
  • A completely hassle-free graduation over the internet
  • Qualifications are a tiny fraction of the price of those from traditional education institutes

Our first qualification, the Level 1 General Biology Certificate, is now available.

To successfully attain this certificate, students will need to successfully pass a one-hour online examination. The exam is made with questions from the ‘Getting Started‘ section of this website and our free 6-week email course (which you can subscribe to at the bottom of this page).
