Centre for Applied Sciences

Welcome to the Centre for Applied Sciences

The Centre for Applied Sciences attracts experts from science-based professions who train to become educators. Our forensic courses are delivered by former crime scene examiners and DNA analysts and our eyewear, eyecare and sports tutors have an abundance of industry experience. Students learn how to apply knowledge in a professional situation, preparing for progression directly into employment or higher education.

Based in the heart of Angel Islington, the Centre offers the facilities, learning environment and teaching excellence that will help learners achieve their ambitions in a range of in-demand scientific fields. Courses on offer range from foundation learning to foundation degrees and lead to professions which require specialist scientific knowledge such as forensics, optics, medicine, nursing, sports and fitness training, pharmacy and physiotherapy. The centre recently benefited from an investment of £2 million in superb engineering and sport science facilities.
