Science Higher Education
The value of science-based careers has never been more obvious.
Industry leading courses
The public profile of scientists has rarely been higher than at present, and the value of science-based careers never more obvious. Beyond the pandemic, however, demand for STEM subject graduates is only going to increase as the government commits to raise R&D investment to £22 billion by 2024. As wide a field as maths and science is, at Petroc it is focused on two areas: 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.
Petroc was my local education provider for the course I required and came highly recommended by people who had previously studied there.
This is the perfect course to get into university, Petroc is a great college that offers amazing support.
