WHAT WILL I STUDY?
If you enjoyed Biology at school and want to increase your specialist knowledge and understanding in a practical context that closely tracks the science that professionals use in the workplace, then this is the course for you. Applied Health Science is a two year course equivalent to one A level, but the approach is very different. There is a much greater emphasis on practical work and work-related simulations and you will produce structured assignments rather than having to memorise a large body of knowledge.
