Study Science at MK College
From searching for the cure to thousands of diseases, to sending people into space, science is all around us and is ever-evolving.
You will be spending time in our labs investigating the scientific basis behind physics, chemistry and biology theories. Students on our Advanced Science course, Forensic & Criminal Investigation, will learn how to apply their knowledge to the legal system in order that this can be used in a court of law.
If you have an inquisitive mindset, studying scientific subjects can lead you to discover a rewarding and dynamic career.

Experiment with our Facilities
You will have access to three fully equipped science labs and gain hands-on experience in conducting investigations in biological, chemical, physical and life sciences. This could include sampling, testing, measuring, recording and analysing results.
You may have noticed that we offer Intermediate and Advanced courses for most areas.
Intermediate courses are equivalent to Level 1/2 and are for those people who need a bit of extra focus and support in order to learn more about their specific interest, get familiar with tools and equipment and may need to resit GCSE English and/or maths.
Advanced courses are equivalent to Level 3 and are ideal for people who have a good grasp of their interest, but need to focus on developing their technical skill and concentrate on growing their skills and employability, learning how to turn their talent into a career.
Come to an In Person Event
If you do not wish to join a Live Q&A session today, then please join us at our next in person Open Event where you can meet the tutors and tour the facilities.
