The HNC Applied Biosciences course aims to develop competent and safe learners by enabling students to:
1. Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of fundamental facts and theories associated with Applied Biosciences including: Biochemistry, Genetics, Cell & Molecular Biology, Microbiology,
Anatomy and Physiology
2. Display knowledge and competence in introductory practical and experimental methods of acquiring information within Applied Biosciences (as above); as well as a basic understanding of their applications to the development of scientific knowledge and understanding
3. Exhibit an ability to gather, evaluate and interpret qualitative and quantitative data, in order to
develop lines of argument and make sound judgements in accordance with basic theories and
concepts of Applied Biosciences (as above)
4. Display knowledge of a range of communication techniques and methodologies relevant to
5. Present the results of their study/work accurately and reliably, and with structured and coherent
6. Show qualities and transferable skills necessary for independent lifelong learning and employment requiring the exercise of some personal responsibility
7. Identify and undertake further training and develop new skills within a structured and managed
Augmenting the above, the HND Applied Biosciences course also aims to enable students to:
8. Develop in-depth knowledge and critical understanding of Applied Biosciences facts and theories, alongside the techniques and competence in advanced experimental methods
9. Critically appraise a range of established techniques to gather, interpret and critically analyse data, formulate arguments and make sound judgements, in accordance with the facts and theories, and propose solutions to problems As well as applying these concepts and principles outside the context in which they were first studied, including, an employment context
10. Effectively use communication techniques to communicate information, arguments and analysis in a variety of forms to specialist and non-specialist audiences and utilise key Applied Biosciences techniques effectively
11. Utilise the above qualities and transferable skills in decision-making, and the continued training, to further develop and acquire new skills and competences, to enable them to assume significant responsibility within organisations.
