Preparation for Applied Science
This course will cover the basic theory of science, numeracy and microbiology. There will also be a large practical element to introduce you to laboratory techniques and enable you to improve your scientific communication and project investigation skills. It is an ideal course for those without formal science qualifications that would like to enter into study in this subject area.
There are no formal entry requirement but applicants may be asked to complete a short diagnostic test.
Method of Assessment
There will usually be an end of unit assessment or report and some units may also have a compulsory practical element in order to achieve the unit.
Successful completion will allow students to progress onto the Applied Science Fast Track course. Upon completion of both courses, students can then progress onto our Certificate in Applied Science (Level 5/6) course.
