Course Description

Introduction

This level 3 Diploma in Physics is of a similar academic standard and content to an A level in the subject. The course will be of interest to anyone who already has a basic knowledge and understanding of physics commensurate with GCSE level and wishes to develop their subject knowledge. It may also be of interest to students who wish to refresh their knowledge and understanding of physics as part of continuing professional development or as part of ongoing higher level planned study.
