This two-year full time course is equivalent to three A Levels. It provides a practical, coursework-based alternative to traditional science A Levels. You will study the traditional scientific disciplines in an applied, context-lead approach and your modules will include Microbiology, Practical Chemical Analysis, Medical Physics and Genetics and Genetic Engineering. You will gain experience of both routine and advanced laboratory techniques and learning will be supported by relevant educational visits. If you have not achieved a Grade C or equivalent in an ICT-related subject, Level 3 Essential Skills in ICT will be compulsory. This programme of study is likely to include enrichment units which are an additional component to enhance your employability. A minimum attendance of 80% is expected on all aspects of the course.
