City & Islington College

Creating pathways to employment and higher education in the sciences


Bucking a national trend of declining interest in science courses, the College has built on its long track record in fields such as optical dispensing and forensic science and established a thriving Centre for Applied Sciences. Staff at the Centre and the College’s sixth form facility, many of whom are recruited to the College from the relevant professions, work with employers to deliver courses that lead directly to careers in science-related fields and to increasing progression to higher education.
