If you wish to study STEM subjects and intend to progress to higher education, this course is for you.

Where next - Further Studies

Depending on the grades achieved, students can progress onto a University degree or a Pearson BTEC Level 4 HNC Diploma/Level 5 HND Diploma course at a higher education institute.
