Why study Life Sciences at D&A College?

Dundee has one of the UK's most dynamic biomedical and life sciences communities. There are many companies, two world-renowned universities, research institutes and scientists working at an international level all within a five-mile mile radius of Dundee and Angus College. The city is home to 20% of Scotland’s Life Science companies providing a wide range of products and research from drug discovery, through medical devices and diagnostics, to environmental biotechnology.

Life Sciences is seen as a key growth area by the Scottish Government and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects are now national priorities.

At Dundee and Angus College we offer a wide range of courses, both part-time and full-time, from SCQF Level 6-8. We also run an introductory course in May to provide an opportunity for progression to our Level 6 courses for anyone who doesn't have previous experience in chemistry or biology.

A key factor in our success is the supportive and encouraging environment within which you will study, whilst developing practical and problem-solving skills required for working in industry. On completion of your course, you will have many opportunities for progression to a wide range of academic institutions or employment.
