Course summary

If you have a passion for science but are not sure what area you want to work in then the Higher National Certificate (HNC) Applied Science course will prepare you for a wide range of careers. It covers topics across biology, chemistry and physics and will allow you to acquire a high level of practical laboratory skills. You will build on your previous studies of science by widening your knowledge of scientific investigation and practical techniques and you will develop the numeracy skills required in a scientific setting.BMet is the regional STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) Centre for the West Midlands. This means we host and participate in many events that promote the study of these subjects at GCSE level and beyond. Laboratories for the teaching of biology, chemistry and physics are available at Sutton Coldfield College, along with onsite libraries full of information resources. The HNC course is a Level 4 qualification made up of 120 credits studied full-time over one year. It allows you to develop a broad knowledge and awareness of key aspects of the sciences sector through eight modules. On successful completion of the HNC qualification you may be eligible to progress to a related HND Top Up course or into the second or third year of a subject related degree at a University, enter or continue in employment, link with the appropriate professional body or commit to CPD (Continuing Professional Development).We offer smaller class sizes enabling supportive quality teaching and allows both one to one tuition and group work.
