Science Academy

What is the Science Academy?

We set up the Science Academy to help our students to be accepted at the best Universities to study Science and Computer Science. It is very competitive to get into some of the top degree courses (Veterinary, Pathology, Engineering, Medicine, and Dentistry) and the Science Academy will give you unique experiences that will put your UCAS application at the top of the list.  We are confident when we say that the opportunities we offer are unique; they are not available at other Colleges.

Who is a member of the Science Academy?

If you choose to study one or more of Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Computer Science or Applied Science, you will automatically become a member of ‘The Science Academy’. This means you are entitled to access a range of Science and Computing opportunities to help develop you for University and beyond.
