On Track to Bath: Science Track

A free two-year curriculum enhancement programme for students thinking about studying physical or biological sciences at university.

What your students can expect

The On Track to Bath Science Track is for students considering studying Biology, Biochemistry, Biomedical Sciences, Chemistry, Natural Sciences, Pharmacy and Pharmacology or Physics. It is NOT suitable for students who are considering studying medicine or applying for a medicine course.

Your students will have the opportunity to:

  • find out what it is like to study science at university
  • experience hands-on activities in our state-of-the-art laboratories
  • increase their knowledge and understanding of science
  • improve their lab skills
  • develop their research skills

Students will also learn how to make a successful application and transition to higher education.

Academic research project

Your students will study an academic research project. This will help them develop essential skills and practices for studying at university level. It will also enhance students’ understanding of science and its challenges.

Your students can choose a topic of research that interests them from a variety of themes. They will then attend a programme of nine on-campus sessions.

The project will also help those students who want to go on and take the Extended Project at AS level.
