First-year Applied Science students at Richard Huish College used National Careers Week (6th-11th March) to explore ideas for progression.
The qualification contains elements of Physics, Chemistry and Biology, and builds practical laboratory skills in preparation for a huge range of science-related careers.
Many students undertaking the Extended Diploma completed work placements during the week and all attended a series of talks hosted by the RSPCA, NHS, Southwest Pathology Labs and EDF.
The employers gave great insight into the diverse range of opportunities available for an Applied Science graduate, including the variety of Apprenticeships available at different levels.
A former Huish student also returned to the campus to provide a talk about the Audiology Degree Apprenticeship he is undertaking at Musgrove Park Hospital.
