Science plays a crucial role in shaping society, with careers in the sector extending well beyond obvious roles. Higher level science qualifications can open doors to better employment prospects and new opportunities spanning a range of sectors including roles in life sciences, food production, development and archaeology.
The demand for those with higher level Science skills has increased significantly, as the continual development of complex medicines and therapies has advanced, with 2018 seeing a shortfall of over 170,000 qualified workers for UK science and engineering roles.
With more demand than ever before for skilled Science graduates, there has never been a better time to study a Science qualification with us.
All of our HNCs and HNDs are offered on a part-time basis so can be worked around current commitments.
20% of the UK’s workforce are currently employed in Science positions, with significantly more graduates and postgraduates in the core and related science workforce than other economic sectors, with the average salary for scientists also generally being higher than the wider national average wage.
As a learner at Preston’s College, you will benefit from study in purpose built, well equipped laboratories, computer suites and an extensive library. In addition, as a higher education learner, you will have access to the Higher Education Centre, offered with exclusivity for those studying on HNCs, HNDs and degrees with us.
