We are excited to announce that the artwork of QMC second-year students studying the Cambridge Technical Extended Dipolma in Art and Design will be showcased at the Proteus Creation Space from February 26th to 29th.
Teaming up with the Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council, our students have created their own designs for a local bench as part of their work experience placement for the ‘Streets Alive’ project.
The public will have the chance to vote for their favourite design at the exhibition, where the winning creation will be painted on the bench in Spring 🎨
‘Streets Alive’ has attracted contributions from some of Basingstoke’s finest artists and storytellers. We can’t wait to see a student from The QMC School of Creative Arts join this esteemed roster, marking the first student work to be featured in the amazing project 🌟
Join us for this momentous occasion and cast your vote! 🗳️

Where can this course take me?
Advances in Science and Technology are revolutionising the world in which we live and influence almost every aspect of our lives. With the pace of discovery and development ever increasing, the range of career opportunities for people with the skills that Science qualifications provide are unimaginably diverse and you will always be in demand.
In Chemistry A Level, students will develop a deep understanding of scientific principles, combined with the ability to solve ‘real world’ problems, and the practical laboratory skills required for analysis, synthesis and research. Drawing conclusions from observations, using general principles to make predictions about specific contexts, interpreting data, explaining interesting phenomena, and calculating quantities of materials involved in chemical reaction will all form an important part of your growing skills. These skills will make you an attractive prospect for many different employers from a variety of different industries. The range of careers specifically based around Chemistry are too numerous to list, but a Chemistry degree is also a very effective route into surprising careers such as law, accountancy, banking and management.
EXTRA-CURRICULAR ENRICHMENT OPPORTUNITIES
QMC offers extra-curricular opportunities to students to help them learn and develop their skills and knowledge, to supplement their classroom learning. As a Chemistry student at QMC, you are able to go on course related trips and experiences. In second year, you are also able to attend Chemistry for University workshop to prepare you to study science in higher education. We also offer an excellent Medics and Vets programme for students who are interested in pursuing a career within these fields.
The Chemistry Department at QMC supply excellent handwritten knowledge packs and corresponding training books with past paper questions. Each training book contains 30-40 pages of past paper questions specifically for the topic being taught, meaning you can go into the exams feeling confident. – Sherfield School
