If you have a passion for all things science, our courses combine the study of biology, chemistry and physics and are equivalent to the study of A-levels, so you can progress to university.

You will study in newly refurbished and dedicated labs where you utilise practical scientific techniques, whilst learning from experience lecturers.

During the course there are extra opportunities to expand your knowledge, and experience activities including: undertaking hands on dissections and many practical experiments, visiting the Science and National History Museums, meeting guest speakers such as Doctors from Pilgrim Hospital, and going on fun days out to Alton Towers and paint balling centres.
Previous students have progressed on to study degrees in:

> Forensic Science
> Biomedical Science
> Zoology
> Animal Management
> Marine Biology
> Genetics
> Nursing
