Taking place from the 10th – 19th March, British Science Week is a ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths.
With rising industry demand for scientific skills, plus increasing interest in the world around us and how to protect it for the future, there’s never been a better time to consider a career in science. By choosing a science course, you could open up a huge range of exciting career options – and there’s lots of ways we can help!
Throughout the week we’ll be introducing you to our students, staff and fantastic facilities including laboratories, forensic science “blood spatter room” and much more!
Did you know…
- In 2022 we secured over £1.2m to invest into our science facilities.
- Our City Hub Campus is home to new laboratories and purpose-built higher-level technical facilities for subjects such as biology, chemistry, forensics and dental technologies.
- Our students (and local employers) benefit from a suite of industrial-grade machinery and equipment, including a bench-top NMR scanner, a high-performance liquid chromatogram, UV, IR and Mass spectrometers, and for Forensic Science, bespoke‘crime scene houses’, a blood spatter room and state-of-the-art fingerprint analysis equipment.
- In 2023 we are opening even more new facilities including a rooftop observatory!
Don’t just take our word for it – see what our staff and students have to say!
Using facilities like our crime scene house and blood spatter room, students have the opportunity to develop their skills in simulated ‘real-life’ scenarios and learn through hands-on experience. We also have industry-standard equipment such as the DSC5 fingerprint imaging system and the VSC80i document examination system, which provide further hands-on experience as well as insight as to how professionals analyse crime scene evidence.Emma Hook — Lecturer of Forensic and Applied Science
I really enjoy practical sessions and the experiments we get to do in the labs. I learn a lot and my teachers are very supportive.— Kelvin, Applied Science student.
I love studying here, we get to try lots of great things and no two days are the same. The facilities are fantastic and I’m getting lots of experience which will help me apply to university. My goal is to study a veterinary course, and the variety of areas we cover at college will really help me in the future.— Rose, Applied Science student.
From entry level to university level – we’ve got you covered
We have a huge variety of science courses ranging from Level 1 to University Level – so we’re bound to have something for you.
