HNC APPLIED SCIENCE (GLASGOW UNIVERSITY)
Are you interested in a rewarding career in applied science with direct access to prestigious degree programmes at Glasgow University? Then this may be the course for you with potential progression to 2nd year of a life sciences degree at the University of Glasgow.
The HNC Applied Science programme is a one year articulation programme covering 15 credits from the HNC Applied Science Framework. Learners on the programme will complete their work between college and the university all in preparation for second year entry. The programme is designed to give you a broad overview of the applied sciences area and covers subjects such as microbiology, cell biology, human body, chemistry, biochemistry, maths and statistics.
What you need to qualify for entry...
1 higher at grade C from either Chemistry or Biology.
Candidates will also have experience of science and mathematics at National 5 or intermediate 2.
Students that have successfully completed all units on a NQ Applied Science L6 course would also meet the entry requirements.
This Articulation Programme is a Widening Participation initiative, and applicants must meet one of the following criteria to be eligible:
- Be Scottish Domiciled, residing in an SIMD decile 1-4 postcode area (applicants can check their eligibility on the University of Glasgow’s postcode checker)

Entry to the course will be based upon a competitive review of the applications.
Applicants should now provide detailed information on relevant life, education and employment experience within their personal statement, in addition to demonstrating a genuine interest in the subject.
Tell us what experience you have in the subject already? What about the subject interests you? What skills do you have that will make you a good candidate for the course? Give examples. If your personal statement is missing this crucial information it is likely your application will be rejected and you will be unsuccessful.
As a face to face interview may not be initially possible your personal statement will be a very large factor in determining whether you are short listed for the programme. It is likely that short listed candidates will receive a formal interview either in person or on line.
You will build up an excellent understanding of a broad range of scientific concepts and skills, including:
- Cell Biology
- Anatomy and physiology
- Dissertation writing.
You will also learn to perform a vast range of scientific techniques essential for industry and academia
The full time course will run 3 days a week for 1 years.

There will also be additional academic and induction sessions timetabled at the University of Glasgow throughout the HNC.
Successful completion of all units on this course, with an A for graded unit (dissertation), and successful completion of all elements run by the University of Glasgow (UofG) will allow progression on to second year of a Life Sciences degree programme at UofG.
