Industry leading courses

The public profile of scientists has rarely been higher than in recent years, and the value of science-based careers never more obvious. Demand for STEM subject graduates is only going to increase as the government commits to raise R&D investment to £22 billion by 2024, making a degree in science a valuable asset. As wide a field as maths and science is, the focus at University Centre ǿ is on engineering and bioscience.

Entry points include the access courses in science, leading on to foundation degree study; and a technician apprenticeship could lead you straight into any lab-based business.

The courses will cement maths and science disciplines and develop your knowledge in many directions, giving you a chance to discover the area of scientific study that most appeals to your talent and offers clear pathways for a future career.
