BTEC Science at Rainhill Sixth Form

Course description

Offered as a Subsidiary Diploma (Single Award) or Full Diploma (Double Award). Do you have an enquiring mind, a passion for science and keep a keen eye on developments in the scientific world? If so, we run the ideal solution, the Level 3 BTEC Diploma in Applied Science which offers you the chance to find out about the applications of a range of different science subjects, not just the traditional Chemistry, Biology and Physics. The course is entirely assessed by coursework, therefore you will need to be very organised, motivated and keen to find ‘things’ out for yourself. The BTEC Level 3 Applied Science is good preparation for many roles in the science sector, for example as a technician in the areas of a laboratory or industrial science. This qualification can also be used to progress onto Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to study medically related degree courses such as Forensic Science, Biomedical Science, Pharmacy, Optometry, Radiography, Nursing or even chemistry related courses such as Pharmaceutical Chemistry.

Entry requirements

Minimum grade CC in Science or a merit from a Level 2 Applied Science qualification, and 5 GCSE's at A*-C including English Language and Maths.
