Overview

At CU Scarborough there are three qualifications available to study. These are Biological and Chemical Sciences HNC, Biological and Chemical Sciences HND and Biological and Chemical Sciences BSc (Hons) Degree. These can be studied individually or altogether to form the Biological and Chemical Sciences BSc (Hons) Degree.

Why choose this course? 

Biological and Chemical Sciences HNC

The HNC programme is stage one of the degree course. It has been designed to incorporate a significant emphasis on ‘work based’ skills, using our professional quality laboratories as a base to deliver dynamic and high quality teaching. The practical skills learnt during the programme will underpin the theory learnt during the course, providing a well-rounded study experience.

One aim of the HNC course is to ensure you will leave with a general understanding of popular areas of science such as microbiology, genetics, cell biology, human physiology and chemistry, whilst developing integral practical skills associated with these areas – ready to take on the next level of the course by progressing on to the HND in Biological and Chemical Sciences within CU Scarborough.

Biological and Chemical Sciences HND

You can apply to this programme directly or as a direct progression from the HNC in Biological and Chemical Sciences. The HND is year two of the degree course. The course will aim to provide hands on experience in areas such as health and safety microbiology, genetics, cell biology, human physiology and chemistry.

The course will aim to provide hands on experience in areas such as health and safety within the laboratory, Control of substances Hazardous to Health (COSSH) and first aid; which will be embedded within the course to offer you an additional advantage for an already competitive job market. The course also has a heavy emphasis on employability based skills, whereby you should be able to identify the employability skills learnt throughout the course.

Biological and Chemical Sciences BSc (Hons) Degree

The breadth of the course reflects the blurring of boundaries between the different sciences and has been designed to provide students with a range of skills and knowledge that is necessary in today’s multidisciplinary community environment. One aim of the course is to ensure you will leave with a good solid understanding of popular areas of science such as microbiology, genetics, cell biology, human physiology and chemistry, whilst developing integral practical skills associated with these areas.

  • The Fundamentals of Biological and Chemical Sciences – including cell biology, chemistry and physiology. You will develop a core understanding within the sciences, with applications to industry and the health sector
  • Physiology – you will begin with basic physiology and anatomy of the major physiological systems in the human body. You will apply this knowledge to more complex interactions and laws that dictate and affect physiological function, whilst introducing basic pharmacological principles and drugs used to treat a range of diseases
  • Chemistry – at this level you will examine in greater depth the branch of organic chemistry, its functional substrates, bonding and mechanisms
  • Cell and Molecular Biology – at this level you will gain a developed understanding of eukaryotic cell structure and the complex cellular regulatory processes, with the application of this knowledge to a number of emerging applications of molecular techniques within the area of gene technology
  • Practical Laboratory/Academic Skills – you will apply knowledge of small scale investigations, integrating some principles of project management and the associated processes

Biological and Chemical Sciences BSc (Hons) Degree (year 3)

  • Employability and Current Scientific Themes
  • Analysis and Applications of Chemistry
  • Biological and Chemical Sciences Project
  • Pathophysiology of Disease

On successful completion of this course you should be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of:

  • The Fundamentals Biological and Chemical Sciences – including biology, chemistry and physiology. You will develop your core understanding within the sciences, with a particular focus on the application of fundamental scientific principles within analytical industries. At this level you will also develop a critical appreciation of biological and chemical sciences to enable them to develop practical skills in a range of scenarios
  • Human Anatomy and Physiology – you will be given an understanding of human physiological and anatomical systems and apply knowledge to complex principles that dictate physiological functions. At this level you will also develop critical analysis of a variety of human systems and the diseases that affect them, which will be underpinned by current research and thinking in these areas
  • Chemical Composition and Analysis – you will look at the underlying principles of carbon chemistry and radiation processes. At this level there will be a major focus on comparing and analysing analytical techniques and applying them to real life case studies, based on organic and inorganic materials
  • Health and Disease Issues – you will be introduced to basic pharmacological principles and drugs used to treat a range of diseases and gain a developed understanding and critical analysis of the complex pathophysiology and aetiological causes of a variety of tropical diseases, whilst observing the clinical signs and symptoms used to diagnose these disorders
  • Cell and Molecular Biology – you will study eukaryotic and prokaryotic cell structure whilst beginning to explore bacterial diversity and emerging antibiotic strains with the application of this knowledge to a number of emerging applications of molecular techniques within the area of gene technology
  • Project Management – you will gain an applied knowledge of small-scale investigations, integrating some principles of project management and the associated processes. At this level you will also undertake an independent investigative project, using principles of project management and knowledge of health and safety and ethical procedures


How will this course be taught? 

These courses will be taught through a variety of methods – lectures, tutorials, self-directed learning, textbooks, module webs, scenario-based learning sets, professional libraries and resources, journals and case studies, seminars, discussion forums and peer-to-peer learning.

How will I be assessed? 

Assessment will take the form of individual and group coursework, which is vocationally relevant. The wide range of assessment techniques used at CU Scarborough will ensure that you have every opportunity to demonstrate your skills and knowledge in full.

There are no traditional final examinations to worry about. Instead, we will assess your learning through course work and phase tests. Assessments take place during and at the end of each six-week block.

Teaching contact hours 

As a full-time student a normal learning block will mean that you get 18 hours of teaching each week in groups of approximately 25-50 students. Depending on the course you have chosen, you will attend morning (9.00-13.00) or afternoon (14.00-18.00) sessions. You will also need to attend one 2 hour tutorial each week.

How much does it cost?

Full-time course is: £7,102 per year

For the academic year 2017/18, each six week block will cost £1,775.50. A full academic year is made up of four of these blocks, so this means that a normal full-time year is £7,102. This covers some of your learning materials, all your classes and online tutorials.

The part-time course fee is dependent on how many modules you choose to study in an academic year.

Each stage of the qualification (HNC/HND/Degree) will require you to complete four academic blocks. You can study up to four blocks in one academic year or study at a slower pace (usually three academic blocks per year). Please note if you do study at a slower pace you will need to re-enrol to complete your studies in the next academic year.

For the academic year 2017/18 each block for part-time students will cost £1,775.50. Therefore, the total fee per stage of your qualification if completed in the academic year 2017/18 is: £7,102.

Funding

As a full-time student or part-time student resident in the UK or EU, you can apply for a loan to cover the cost of your tuition fees via Student Finance England.
