Many of the products and items that we use in everyday life are a direct result of the application of chemistry. Pharmaceuticals, hair products, soap and cosmetics; wherever you look, you can see the work of the chemist. By studying chemistry, you will discover the huge impact it has on the world around us and […]
A-Level Chemistry provides many skills that you will use in a variety of areas of employment or further study. It is essential for those wishing to go on and study many science based higher education courses including Medicine, Veterinary science and Dentistry. You will develop transferrable skills including investigating, problem solving, research, decision making, mathematical and analytical skills. Employers in non-science areas also value highly the skills that are developed through studying A-Level Chemistry and some students go into areas as diverse as Accountancy, Banking and Finance, Business Studies and Journalism.
This course will help you gain a deep and well-informed insight into the environment and the scientific processes that control and affect it. Learn how different events and cycles within the environment interrelate, how they influence subsequent environmental events, the human impacts on these events and cycles, and the strategies that can be used to […]
This is a great accompaniment to A Levels in Geography, Biology, Physics, Maths and Geology as well as developing key skills in communication, teamwork and critical thinking. An interest in the environment, plants and animals in general is a great starting point for this subject and by studying Environmental Science it will add academic kudos to that informal knowledge and understanding.
Physics is about everything in the Universe from the smallest quarks to the largest galactic clusters. It is about the quest to extend the boundaries of our knowledge of the way everything works and explain (usually mathematically) the rules of the Universe. Studying A-level Physics will help you on your way to a profound understanding […]
Physics is a subject for those who want to know why things happen in the way that they do - and the very best thing about it is that you will eventually come up with questions that can't be answered today but that will be answered in the future. And who knows, you may be the very person to have the idea that answers the question that has bugged you all these years. What is more, we will never run out of questions to ask.
