This Cert HE course is designed to cater for students who have 48 - 63 UCAS points or have Level 3 qualifications in a non-scientific subject set. On successful completion of the Cert HE, the student will progress directly into the second year of the FdSc programme. The Green revolution has begun, now more than ever we are realising the danger our planet is in. This course will set you on a journey towards aiding its recovery..
