If you are passionate about understanding how the world works or making new discoveries, then a career in science is ideal for you.

Scientists work across many industries, including technology, transport, medicine and the environment. At our fully equipped laboratories, you’ll use the latest equipment to test out theories and carry out experiments.

You’ll also have the chance to hear from expert speakers about career options in their field, which in the past has included Dr John Rokos, from the Institute of Biomedical Science, and from others about furthering your studies.

Our Courses and Apprenticeships

The School of Science offers progression routes from Level 1 to Level 4. All of our courses are taught with a variety of approaches in mind, designed to make your learning experience the best it can be.

We offer courses in:

  • Applied science
  • Applied science and technology
  • Applied biology
  • Access to Higher Education Diploma in Science

Access to Higher Education courses are aimed at people who want to go to university and either do not have enough A Levels to do so or have been out of full time education for some time. Each university has a minimum number of UCAS points required to study one of their degrees. You need to be aged 19 or over to study for an Access to Higher Education course.

If you are aged 19 – 23 and your Access to Higher Education is your first Level 3 course you will not need to pay course fees.

You do not have to repay your Access to Higher Education Learning Loan when you successfully complete your (subject related) university degree.
