Science in Society as ‘additional learning’ within an advanced diploma programme

Science in Society as ‘additional learning’ within an advanced diploma programme

Advanced diploma programmes (level 3) require a number of hours - typically 360 ‘guided learning hours’ - of ‘generic learning’ in addition to the focused principal learning. Catalogues of approved courses that provide suitable additional learning are published for each diploma on the National Database of Accredited Qualifications.

Science in Society is listed in the catalogues for all currently available advanced diploma programmes and may be used alongside the vast majority of other additional learning courses (barring code EE226, AS=180 guided learning hours).

Many students would gain value from various elements of the Science in Society course within such diplomas as Society Health and Development, Engineering, Creative and Media, Information Technology, or Construction and the Built Environment.
