Your future starts here.
Science is the evidence-based study of the world and universe in which we live. It is essential to all aspects of our lives: health and medicine, the environment, materials, industry, nature, food, communications and so much more. Life sciences are a key strand of the North East’s economic growth, with the aim of doubling the number of related jobs in the region by 2027.
As well as a host of full-time courses, we also offer part-time courses in Science where you can study at a location near you with daytime, evening and weekend options.
