This course is mainly units from Higher Chemistry, Higher Physics and Higher Maths, with some supporting subjects to help you prepare for a future career in STEM. It also offers a significant practical element, so expect plenty of ‘hands on’ experience in the lab.
In Chemistry, you’ll focus on three main topics:
Chemical Changes and Structure (reaction rates; atomic structure and bonding; formulae and reaction quantities; acids and bases); Nature’s Chemistry (food and everyday products such as soaps, detergents and skincare); Chemistry in Society (industrial production of products).
In Physics, you’ll look at four:
Electricity, including electrical storage and transfer; Our Dynamic Universe (kinematics, dynamics and space-time); Particles and Waves; Researching Physics (practical investigation).
No formal entry requirements. A place on the course is subject to an interview process.
Progression onto an HNC/D or degree level courses, including Engineering Academy in partnership with Strathclyde University.
