The Science department offers a variety of courses particularly in the areas of pure sciences, environmental science, and agriculture. The Science Department also offers degree and pre-degree programmes.

Our pre-degree courses are for our:
i. Foundation students who did not meet our foundation course prerequisites;
ii. Education and Nursing students who need to meet the prerequisites for our degree courses for the Certificate in Science, Diploma in Environmental Science and Bachelor of Science Programmes.
Students in the pre-degree programme may enrol in either the Foundation Certificate in Science or the Basic Certificate in Science programme.

The Basic Certificate in Science programme is open to students with a PSSC aggregate of 20 or better or to mature entrants with work experience.
