This is an intensive yet rewarding course which is intended to provide a qualification equivalent to three A-levels, recognised by universities as sufficient for entry to medical related degree courses such as medicine, biomedical science, pharmacy, marine biology, dentistry and veterinary science.
Throughout the course, you will delve into an array of units that can prepare you for the medical career you want to work towards. From cell biology and human reproduction to reproductive biology and psychology for healthcare. With a broad scope, you can use this knowledge to progress into a specified area of medical study.
You will also be developing a wide range of academic study skills on the course, from essay writing to using ICT, leading you towards the Independent Academic Study unit, where you will have the chance to experience what producing a dissertation will be like, once you move onto university.
