Science

If you’re passionate about creating and discovering things and want to make your mark within an ever-growing industry where demand is high, choosing one of our scientific courses could be perfect for you.

With rising industry demand for scientific skills and high profile scientists like Professor Brian Cox and astronaut Tim Peake championing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), a career in science is becoming an increasingly popular choice.

Nottingham College was the first college in the region to secure STEM Assured status, so you can be confident that we can teach you all you need to know to succeed in the ever growing and changing scientific industry. You’ll get relevant knowledge and training, gaining high level practical skills, which are recognised by employers in the industry.

Our courses cover a broad base and open up career opportunities in the NHS and in industries like life sciences, pharmaceuticals, environmental health, forensics and biochemistry.

We also hold Associate College status with the Royal Society, which is a fellowship of the world’s most renowned scientists. Plus, we are affiliated to the Royal Society of Physics and the Institute of Physics - all meaning you can rest assured that you are in a reputable place.

Nottingham has a thriving health science sector and we have really good links with some of the area’s top employers - so you can look forward to guest lectures and inspiring work experience opportunities.

Levels

At Nottingham College, we have a huge variety of science courses which include a range of Diplomas and Extended Diplomas, ranging from Level 1 to Level 3.
