CAO CODE : WD 177 The Science Common Entry course was designed for the student who has a keen interest in science, but is unsure of which area they would like to specialise in. This programme gives the student a flavour of a variety of different scientific disciplines, allowing them to keep their options open when applying to study science at third level. The modules of this programme offer an introduction to biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics and computing. Elective modules are also offered in specialised areas such as Food Science, Pharmaceutical Science, Agricultural Science and Biotechnology. The student can get a taste of what is involved in each of these areas, before making a more informed choice as to which area they would like to specialise in for their degree.
