Access to Biological Science Level 3
The Access to HE Diploma in science is being offered at Tottenham Centre during day time only. It is intended that learners will study full-time for a one-year period. The Access to HE Diploma in science will focus on equipping the learners with the laboratory skills and theoretical knowledge required to succeed at Higher Education. This programme has been designed to focus not only on the biology, chemistry, physics and maths but will emphasise development of the more fundamental skills of good study practices, confidence building and research skills which will enable learners to become independent and therefore more likely to succeed on their chosen course at university. We have been conscious to place the learner at the centre of the programme and the units chosen can equip the learner to study from a wide range of science courses at higher education.
How is the course taught
Much of the work is practical based within a laboratory setting. This is supported by a research project and a field trip to focus on how fieldwork investigations are produced.
Assessment is portfolio based marked by teachers and validated by the exam board. There are three exams in December and June.
