What will I learn?

This programme is ideal if you would like to study any of the science-based degrees we offer, but don’t have the right qualifications or grades to do so. Science Gateway will prepare you for success on our degree programmes by helping you develop your knowledge in relevant areas of biology and chemistry, your practical skills, and your academic study skills. The programme runs for one year at Cornwall College’s thriving Newquay campus and will be taught in small supportive groups by experienced tutors. Successful completion of this programme will allow you to progress to the first year of your chosen Foundation Degree (FdSc) or Bachelors (BSc) programme (that may run at any of our campuses across Cornwall and Devon – please see website for details).This inclusive and intensive programme covers core principles in biology and chemistry (with physics modules available for progression to some programmes) and provides ample opportunities to acquire new laboratory and fieldwork techniques. You will refresh key elements of maths, essential for higher level study, and develop your academic study skills to a high level to support success on your chosen degree and beyond. You will learn the method of science, research skills, academic writing and referencing, and presentation skills.
