Health Science Professions – Access to Higher Education Diploma

The Health Science pathway is a platform that leads allied health professions which include Paramedics, Physiotherapy, Radiography as well as Chiropractic to name a few.  Access to Health Science is designed for adults seeking a career path in a science related profession. The programme begins by helping you to understand the basic concepts of Biology and you will progress to learn about health and disease through existing medical research. In Term 2 you will carry out your own research project in the laboratory. Alongside this you will learn core study skills that will prepare you for University. The Access to Health Science Professions requires commitment and dedication and will provide a challenging yet fun learning environment towards your career goals. 

Biology AS/A Level

Biology is a good supporting subject for many other career paths, and is respected academically by universities for entry to a variety of degree courses. Biology can lead to a wide range of careers such as Medicine, Veterinary, Pharmaceutical, Environmental and Conservation work, teaching, cosmetic industries, food technology, and forensic science.

Chemistry AS/A Level

A Level Chemistry builds upon the knowledge gained at GCSE but explores it much further. It is a demanding and hugely rewarding subject that encourages deep learning and develops higher-order skills. This course covers a wide range of chemistry topics that build from the basics of formulae writing, calculating chemical quantities and atomic structure. We examine the application of these core principles, in the context of intermediate bonding and the effects of intermolecular forces and redox reactions, organic chemistry, equilibria, transition metals and organic nitrogen chemistry. This conceptual learning is underpinned by practical skills.

Physics AS/A Level

Everything can be explained using physics. From the formation of stars and galaxies, to the behaviour of atoms, and even how guitar amplifiers work, all involve an understanding of physics.

This course will give you a thorough understanding on how the principles of physics can be used to describe the world around us, using both a theoretical and experimental approach. As mathematics is the language of physics, emphasis will be placed on developing mathematical models that can be used to not only explain the physics but provide verification of experimental results.
