Medical Science

Type of Course: BTEC Subsidiary Diploma

Course description

· Explore the essential procedures and practices found in all laboratories, including data storage and safety regulations.

· Gain insight into how the human body works and is regulated.

· Study biological molecules and the chemical processes involved in cellular energy production.

The course requires you to:

· Complete 360 guided hours of learning

· Carry out independent research work

· Complete some practical work

· Keep up to date with scientific advancements by reading newspapers


Is coursework based with no final examination—this requires producing work that meets given criteria. Six units need to be completed in order to gain a pass, merit or distinction.


The Award gives UCAS points towards University entrance.

This is a vocational award giving a good basis for those wishing to enter science based employment or further training, ie Science technicians, nursing, paramedics etc.

Pupils will use cutting-edge genetic techniques such as gel electrophoresis and the amplification of DNA to enhance their understanding of genetic engineering.

We will also visit hospitals and other medical science employers to look at the application of medical sciences in the workplace.
