If you want to explore the processes that take place in living organisms and gain a recognised qualification, then GCSE Biology is the learning opportunity for you.
As a student you will develop your experimental strategies and skills, your abilities in evaluation and analysis, and your scientific thinking.
You will also become knowledgeable about quantities, units and symbols, and expand your scientific thinking.
This will equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to achieve this qualification and apply what you have learned to new study and career-related endeavours.

Will I have to pay fees?
School Leavers under the age of 19 do not have to pay fees on any full time courses, though may have to pay for their second year if turning 19 during their studies.
If you’re aged 19 or over you might qualify for an Advanced Learner Loan. It’s easy to apply for and you won’t have to pay anything back until you’re earning over £27,295. Find more information on Advanced Learner Loans on our website.
If you are studying a part-time course and you receive one of the following benefits, or you depend financially on someone who does, you may be entitled to have your tuition fees waived:
- Job Seeker’s Allowance
- Income Support
You will, however, have to pay any awarding body/assessment fees (unless you are on a first full level 2 course).
* If you are in receipt of Working Tax Credit or receive other allowances, you may be eligible to claim concessionary rates. If you are entitled to a fee concession you will be asked to provide proof of your entitlement.
It is essential that you inform us if your entitlement changes at any time during your course.
