Applied/Forensic Science Courses

Do you have an eye for detail and an inquisitive nature? 

Put this together with a passion for science and the Applied/Forensic Sciences courses at Oaklands College could be the right choice for you.

Applied Science is the application of knowledge from one or more natural scientific fields to practical problems, while Forensic Science is a broad field that encompasses many types of forensic scientists. 

Forensic anthropologists study bones; forensic pathologists examine bodies and look for clues while performing autopsies; and Forensic Psychologists and Psychiatrists investigate the criminal mind and assist in profiling.

The BTEC qualifications in Applied Sciences and Forensic Science have been developed in the areas of a laboratory and industrial Science. They provide a work-related course of study that covers the knowledge and practical skills required in the sector. The Level 3 Extended Diploma programme is equivalent to 3 A Levels and can lead to direct entry to university.
