Sciences

Welcome to the Science Faculty.

The Science Faculty promotes knowledge and understanding of scientific concepts, facts, ideas and techniques and the applications of science in society and industry.

Biology gives us knowledge and understanding of how all animals, plants and other living things depend on each other and how our bodies work. We can all learn about new discoveries such as biotechnology and genetics and find out how they help in finding new cures for diseases and improving food production.

Chemistry is important in everyday life to help us understand the nature of many materials we use, such as plastic, fuel and metals. We can find out how substances are made up and how chemical reactions can change things. A course in Chemistry will be very useful for a wide range of careers in Science and Medicine.

Physics helps us to understand how and why things work. Many things we depend on, such as transport, power and modern technology are based on the laws of Physics.

Physics continues to become increasingly important for entry to Further and Higher Education Courses at all levels and is relevant for a great variety of jobs.
