We are extremely proud of the work our students produce and the wide range of scientific skills they develop as our courses are taught in a very practical way. Our teachers come from a wide range of industrial backgrounds and are able to offer students real-life context to learning. Graduating students have gone on to study Medicine; Veterinary Science; Pharmacy; Radiography; Electrical, Aerospace, Automotive and Mechanical Engineering; Biomedical Sciences and lots of other courses, many at Russell Group universities. We encourage our students to take up a range of opportunities, including NHS experience through our volunteering links; becoming part of national data collection on climate change with the Peak District National Parks or gaining one of the prestigious placements or with the Nuffield Foundation working with university professionals on real projects.


The course covers Biology, Chemistry and Physics and the skills needed by scientists to collect, analyse and interpret data.

You will carry out experiments and learn how science is used in different jobs.  Assignments are based on real applications of science in areas such as forensic science, food technology and environmental science.

A number of specifications will be changing and prospectus entries are based on information we have to date. This means that course content may be subject to change.

How will it be delivered?

2 exam units and 6 coursework units

What can I do next?

Students from this course have gone on to do the BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Applied Science.
