There are many options for students wishing to pursue a career in Biology, including teacher, researcher, laboratory work, medical sales, science writing, healthcare and more. Students may consider direct entry into employment or further training.
A key course for students planning to continue on to university to study subjects including medicine, dentistry, veterinary science, biochemistry, marine biology, midwifery, nursing, environmental science, physiotherapy and sports science. It also provides a strong grounding for those wishing to pursue many other subject areas at degree level.
I came to The Henley College from Chiltern Edge School. I thoroughly enjoyed studying GCSE Biology at school and I have always wanted to do something in the medical profession. I thought A Level Biology would be very useful if I wanted to pursue that career path.
I really enjoyed the practical side of Biology, learning about genetics, how diseases/mutations are inherited from parents and the majority of human biology, in particular the kidneys and liver.
After College I would like to go on to either train as a dental nurse or study a nursing degree at university.
