With a £21million investment bringing new science facilities to our Lackham and Salisbury campuses, now is an exciting time to study science at Wiltshire College & University Centre.
Our range of courses allow you to specialise in a variety of scientific disciplines, including Applied Science, Forensic Investigation, Environmental Science and Sustainability, Biology and more.
Your detailed theoretical knowledge will be developed and underpinned by a practical understanding of your subject, preparing you to work in an industry that is constantly expanding and evolving. Crucially, you'll learn how to think and work like a professional in a scientific field, transferring your knowledge of scientific concepts to real-life scenarios. You will be supported and encouraged to undertake an extended work placement in the form of a collaborative project with an industry-leading employer. Our Level 3 courses are A-Level-equivalent qualifications, allowing you to meet the entry requirements for university, including onto our exciting new Foundation Degrees.
I have been a professional Chartered Chemist for 25 years, working as an industrial chemist and have been teaching in Further Education for 5 years. My time in the chemical industry allows me to share interesting real-life experiences with students. My specialism is in Analytical Chemistry, which I am able to apply to my teaching in the Life Science disciplines.
The new AgriTech Centre will host state-of-the-art science and tech teaching facilities and a media display wall with a live feed of data and visuals from Home Farm.
