What can I do next?

Our BTEC Applied Science students have gone on to university to study gateway to medicine, chemical engineering, pharmaceutical science, biomedical science, medical genetics, health and human sciences, human biology, biochemistry, podiatry, forensic science, biology, biosciences, genetics and molecular biology, microbiology and molecular biology, veterinary science, wildlife conservation, radiotherapy and radiography. Many of these students have gone to the prestigious Russell Group Universities. Students have also taken up apprenticeships including microbiology and surgical instrumentation.
