Social?
Social 
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

Description...
This course is ideally suited for students who are interested in progressing to a third level course in a science related discipline. Modules taught include the core science subjects - Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics.

The Mathematics module is accepted for entry to higher education courses. These modules (along with IT skills) form the basis of all first year third level science programmes. In addition, students study microbiology and anatomy and physiology, which will give students a firm foundation upon which to start their college career and a distinct advantage over students entering directly from school. The majority of our graduates progress to further study in higher education.

 

What you will Study...
These are the main subject modules available in this course. Note: Colleges may add/remove modules to keep the course updated and to meet demands.
