About this course

UC offers a wide range of science subjects for students wanting to carry out postgraduate studies. The Postgraduate Certificate in Science (PGCertSc) is an ideal option for those wanting professional development in their scientific field, and for those with other commitments who cannot complete an extensive science programme.

Entry requirements

Students will need to have a Bachelor of Science, or equivalent, or be otherwise qualified for entry to the postgraduate study in your chosen subject as specified in the Regulations for the Postgraduate Diploma in Science or the Regulations for the Bachelor of Science with Honours. You may be required to first complete a preparatory programme in this case.

If English is your additional language, you are also required to meet UC's English language requirements.
