These courses are ideal if you are interested in exploring STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) subjects. If you are considering your next steps, then join one of these courses to expand your knowledge in a range of relevant subjects.
Food Science and Nutrition: From the Farm to You
Follow the fascinating journey of food from the farm into your body and explore new food technologies and nutrition around the world. On this course, you will find out about the food supply chain and how food processing can make food healthier. You will learn how food science and nutrition help us to study the fascinating world of food. This course will you a taste of what it is like to study for undergraduate degrees in food science and nutrition.
Ecology and Wildlife Conservation
Discover how the work of conservation biologists and the study of ecosystems can help with conserving the worlds biodiversity. Explore the impact of wind farms on populations of seabirds, and investigate advanced techniques of studying different ecosystems such as coral reef. This course is a taster to undergraduate degrees in conservation biology, biology and zoology.
Atmospheric Chemistry: Planets and Life beyond Earth
Investigate the chemical composition of planetary atmospheres across our solar system and beyond and explore the possibility of finding life beyond Earth. Discover what an atmosphere is, how its formed, and how data collected from space missions are used to determine a planets atmosphere. Atmospheric chemistry is one of the most exciting aspects of studying chemistry at undergraduate level.
Exploring Cancer Medicines
Explore what it is like to study for an undergraduate degree in medicinal chemistry by looking into the topic of cancer chemotherapy. Find out what cancer chemotherapy is, how it was developed and how the development of effective medications for the treatment of cancer remains a significant challenge to scientists. You will also explore how science is communicated to the general public, and learn the skills needed to become an effective science writer.
