Studying for a degree in a science-based subject at either college or university was always seen as a great grounding for a student looking to progress in the workplace. It is also a great opportunity to work with some of the top companies in the country, if not the world. With the vast range of courses available in the field of science, it is not just a great chance to broaden your horizons in the job market but also to study some fascinating subjects such as:
  • Chemistry
  • Biology
  • Physics
  • Medicine
As well as these core elements, there are also science subjects which cover all of these areas, or a number different fields in a modular form. Students partaking in a science-based course will often find that they are studying across a broad spectrum of subjects, even if they initially thought they were only entering into one of the areas mentioned previously.

As appealing as studying for a science based degree might appear, there is actually a huge shortfall of students wanting to sign up to such courses. The rise in interest for subjects such as media studies, business studies and computer programming has meant that there has actually been a fall in applications for science degree places.

There are advantages for the student because of this lack of interest, as many top multi-national firms will sponsor science students in the hope that they will join their company following graduation. This can often mean scholarships or sponsorships which may help a student financially. It can also result more places being available on science based courses for students, meaning there is a higher chance of a pupil gaining entry to their desired university, studying for a course they are genuinely interested in with great career prospects.
