Laboratory Science T Level at South Downs Campus

Are you studying our brand new Laboratory Science T Level at South Downs in September? If so, you’re in the right place!

We have put together the following ‘Getting Ahead’ work to help prep you for your course in September.

We look forward to you starting College with us soon.

Refreshing yourself with Biology, Chemistry and Physics before you start College will be very useful. Especially if, for example, you have not looked at one of them since Year 10. We will of course recap what you need to know but making sure you remember what you have covered at GCSE would be very useful.

Useful books for this would be: Biology for You, Chemistry for You and Physics for You. They are available online and second hand copies are very cheap.

BBC Bitesize is also a useful resource.

Be sure to watch and read the various resources we have listed in the ‘resources’ section!

With the recent outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, one group of people that are often talked about is Epidemiologists.

What is an Epidemiologist?
“Epidemiology is the study and analysis of the distribution (who, when and where), patterns and determinants of health and disease conditions in defined populations. It is a cornerstone of public health.

Major areas of epidemiological study include disease causation, transmission, outbreak investigation, disease surveillance, environmental epidemiology, forensic epidemiology, occupational epidemiology, screening, biomonitoring.”

One route into Epidemiology is through Biomedical Science!

The teaching and support was really great, the quality was really great, all the teachers really care about your education as well as your wellbeing, they take everything into consideration and they’re great.

Katie Whittingham, A Level student

My courses were all especially interesting, I thoroughly enjoyed all of them. All of my lecturers were extremely knowledgeable and I have learnt a lot from them.

Lottie Warren, A Level student

I overcame a couple of barriers by working really hard to get the top grades. My experience was really good, with the course and the lecturers, the residentials and activities, together it was all really good. I had really great teaching support, I could always go to the lecturers and speak to them if I needed to.
