The course has a vocational context built into content of units; the units are designed to be relevant to local/national employers. Students have a wide choice of units to choose from. In addition, it may be of interest to students who enjoyed Science at school and who wish to study a range of science subjects rather than concentrating on studying the individual sciences in depth. Applied Science is mainly assessed by portfolio work: two out of the three units are assessed this way.
