Applied Science

Course Length: 2 years
Study Type: Full time
Start Date: September 2024

Course Overview

Applied science encourages exploration and investigation, preparing the scientists of tomorrow for work in a number of fields. With an emphasis on practical work, students get to test the theories they have learnt in state-of-the-art facilities. With dry and wet laboratories, and cutting-edge scientific equipment, students gain relevant experience of working within a scientific environment.

  • Benefits/Skills
    You will expand on your scientific knowledge in biology, chemistry, physics, diseases and infections. You’ll explore key and interesting topics such as biological molecules and metabolic pathways, as well as studying and discussing contemporary issues in today’s science world. You’ll also learn about experimental design and statistical analysis.
  • Units/Modules
    Get ready to put scientific theories into practice as you study biology, chemistry and physics in our practical state-of-the-art laboratories. You’ll explore specific areas of science such as diseases, physiology, genetics, astronomy, and more. You’ll also strengthen your application of organic and inorganic chemistry, develop practical and experimental techniques, and build up your analytical and research abilities. At the end of this course, you’ll walk away with an Extended Certificate that’s equivalent to one A level.
  • Careers/Progression
    This course can prepare students for careers as varied as nursing and chemical engineering, laboratory technicians and aeronautics. With the wealth of opportunities science unlocks, an applied science course really could take you anywhere.
