Applied Science Higher National Certificate
If you have a passion for science but are not sure what area you want to work in then the Higher National Certificate (HNC) Applied Science course will prepare you for a wide range of careers.
It covers topics across biology, chemistry and physics and will allow you to acquire a high level of practical laboratory skills. You will build on your previous studies of science by widening your knowledge of scientific investigation and practical techniques and you will develop the numeracy skills required in a scientific setting.
BMet is the regional STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) Centre for the West Midlands. This means we host and participate in many events that promote the study of these subjects at GCSE level and beyond.
Laboratories for the teaching of biology, chemistry and physics are available at Sutton Coldfield College, along with onsite libraries full of information resources.
– Fundamentals of Laboratory Techniques
– Scientific Data Handling Approaches and Techniques
– Regulation and Quality in the Applied Sciences.
The HNC course is a Level 4 qualification made up of 120 credits studied full-time over one year. It allows you to develop a broad knowledge and awareness of key aspects of the sciences sector through eight modules.
We offer smaller class sizes enabling supportive quality teaching and allows both one to one tuition and group work. This course has a competitive fee structure with flexible entry requirements based on your experience.
The 1 year tuition fee for academic year 2021-22 is £5,665. Please be aware that we intend to increase tuition fees in subsequent years using the Retail Price Index (RPI-X).
