Be the energy you want to create

What do engineering, biomedicine and forensic criminology have in common? They all stem from Applied Science. If this is a field you’re looking to explore, your scientific future could start with one of our six A level alternatives.

“It’s a field that is constantly changing, whether it’s the hunt for new medicines, new energy sources or even ways to travel to space.”
– Rowena Scott, Head of Science

Just what is Applied Science?

The term “Applied Science” doesn’t refer to a subject but a discipline that uses scientific knowledge for practical purposes.

The way we cook, eat, drive and use our smartphones are rooted in science – and it’s thanks to someone applying scientific knowledge that we reap the benefits.

Our BTECs in Applied Science are vocationally based, which means they’re designed to give you plenty of hands-on learning for whatever future you’re wanting to launch.
