Do you want to study Nationals/Highers within the Science Programme part-time?

This would consist of two Highers or a combination of Nationals/Highers within the Science Programme.  The most appropriate level of subjects for you will be discussed at interview.

Please search one of the Highers within the Science Group to apply online (such as Biology) via courses. Click 'Science Group' and you can then choose part-time on the application form. You can list which Highers/Nationals you would like to study on the application form.

If you wish to study part-time please do not apply for the subjects individually. You must only apply for the Science Group. Please consider that all the subjects are timetabled so you may not be able to study two particular subjects if there is a clash.
