This is a two year course leading to a level 3 diploma in medical science. The diploma is the equivalent of one full A level and can be taken in a mixed programme alongside other A levels or diplomas. We do not recommend that it is taken alongside A level biology due to similarities in course content.

Medical science would work well alongside other science or social science subjects and can lead to careers such as nursing, medical laboratory scientist, paramedic, midwife. The course is not suitable for those who wish to study medical science at university.
