MidKent College offers a number of qualifications in Applied Science and is now accepting applications from prospective students for courses starting in September.
From astronomy and industrial chemistry to forensics, genetics and lots more, the laboratories of the £86 million Medway Campus are home to a wealth of educational opportunities.
Lecturer David Gammon said: “Thanks to the interest surrounding the Large Hadron Collider and the popularity of people like Professor Brian Cox, science is as popular as it has ever been.
“MidKent College is the perfect place for students to take those first steps towards a great career in the science industry, and hopefully even more fantastic discoveries in the future.”
Applications are now open for the Level 2 Diploma in Applied Science, which is equivalent to four GCSEs at grades A-C.
Students who complete the Diploma often progress onto the Level 3 Extended Diploma, which is equivalent to three A-levels and is also now open for application.
“All our courses are very hands-on,” said David. “Virtually every lesson has some sort of practical element to it, which makes it a lot different to school.
“We find that’s the best way to help our students understand the theory behind the tests they are carrying out.
“Many of those enrolled on our science courses enjoyed the subject at school but perhaps didn’t do as well as they had expected and lost confidence as a result.
“We help them rebuild that confidence so they can move onto greater things, which many of our students do.”
MidKent College also offers Higher Education courses in Applied Science, including the Higher National Diploma in Applied Chemistry, and the foundation degree in life science laboratory technology and bio-manufacturing.
