Description

This programme leads to the award by the University of Greenwich of a BSc Hons in a chosen speciality. Specialities include biosciences (focusing on biological sciences, medical biochemistry and molecular biology, or medical physiology); biomedical science; human nutrition; sports science; pharmaceutical sciences, forensic science and chemistry.

This programme is intended to provide coherent progression into year 1 of the BSc Hons degree programmes offered by the School of Science. It has been designed for people who have successfully completed A-levels (or their equivalent) but in a subject area outside the science specialism in which they would like to study. It is also for suitably qualified mature students who may not possess the appropriate A-level qualifications.

Science Formation provides an introduction to biology, chemistry and physics. Essential Science extends your knowledge of biology and chemistry and Topics in Contemporary Science considers topics of current scientific interest. These theory courses are supported by the two laboratory courses Developing Practical Skills and Science Laboratory Skills in full-time mode. Students studying part-time instead follow Laboratory Practical Skills and Laboratory Health, Safety and Administration which are carried out both in the workplace and the college. The Mathematics course covers topics such as basic number work, algebra, functions and graphs and statistics. The various packages available in Microsoft Office are covered in Information Technology.

The programme is delivered through lectures, tutorials, workshops and laboratory classes.
