Why choose Science?

Science is a subject for the inquisitive mind. Through research and experimentation, you’ll identify and understand the scientific principles and laws that make life possible. By studying these courses, your curiosity will be encouraged and your methodology perfected.

You’ll be invited to guest lectures from organisations such as the Institute of Physics, notable mathematician James Grime and many more. The College is also a member of the Royal Society Associate Schools and College scheme, meaning you’ll benefit from our partnership with the UK’s most prestigious scientific institution.

The College is also proud to offer the very successful Medics' Academy for students aspiring to a career in medicine, veterinary science or dentistry. We also offer exciting opportunities to undertake residential trips, such as an international conservation expedition to Honduras.
