The Access to Higher Education Diploma in Science will focus on giving you the laboratory skills and knowledge required to succeed in Higher Education.

This programme has been designed to focus not only on the biology, chemistry, physics and maths but will emphasise development of the more fundamental skills of good study practices, confidence building and research skills which will enable learners to become independent and therefore more likely to succeed on their chosen course at university.

How is the course taught?

Much of the work is practical, within a laboratory setting. This is supported by a research project and a field trip to focus on how fieldwork investigations are produced.

How will I be assessed?

Assessment is based on a portfolio marked by your teachers and validated by examiners. There are tests in some science subjects that need to be completed successfully.

What does it lead to?

You could progress to study science at degree level.
