Online Science Tutoring FAQs

Why study science?

Science is a vital part of everyday life, and science courses help students develop the skills they need to excel in this rapidly changing world. Science is a study that helps us understand how we as humans fit into the bigger picture of the universe around us.

Science is also a subject on its own where you get to explore why things happen the way they do. It gives students an opportunity to learn something new every day.

Science is, of course, an umbrella term that can be broken down into many more specific fields, including biology, chemistry, physics, agriculture, computing science, engineering science, cosmology, and much more. Studying general science allows students to get a taster of each of the fields, and may help them to decide which area they might like to specialise in during later studies. 

What are university degrees in science useful for?

Science isn't just a subject that is useful for a particular degree; it's applicable to every single field. Some people like to use science as a foundation course for both science-related and other degrees.

However, if you want to pursue your career specifically in the field of science, then you are in luck because most universities offer science degrees that have specific streams such as biology, physics, chemistry, engineering, IT, sociology, and more.

Students who wish to pursue a career in biology can choose undergraduate degrees in genetics, epidemiology, ecology, environmental biology, biotechnology, zoology, botany, marine biology, and others.

Students who wish to pursue a career in physics can seek undergraduate degrees in nano-physics, condensed matter physics, particle physics, nuclear engineering, aerospace and defence, automotive, computing, telecommunications, and more.

Similarly, students who want to continue their education in the field of chemistry can opt for undergraduate degrees in agricultural chemistry, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, analytical chemistry and others. 

What careers does studying science lead to?

When one studies science, they explore a universe of observable facts. Studying science also teaches logical thinking skills and develops the mental muscles needed in order to think critically.

These skills are necessary for success in any field which requires critical thinking, such as complicated mathematics or advanced physics calculations, or engineering designs. By studying science, you can pursue a career in research and teaching.

Students of science may also choose to become a: 

  • Doctor

  • Physicist

  • Physician

  • Environmental Biologist

  • Zoologist

  • Microbiologist

  • Biochemist

  • Biotechnologist

  • Geneticist

  • Marine Biologist

  • Chemistry Technician

  • Nuclear Scientist

  • Mechanical Engineer

  • Chemical Engineer

  • Aeronautical Engineer

  • IT professional

Not just that, but studying science in private lessons can also lead to careers in non-scientific fields like law, literature, philosophy, english literature, business, and the arts.  

How does science help with a medical degree?

A strong background in science will help with the understanding of health principles, diagnosis, and treatment. It may also be advantageous as a lot of medical theories are based on the laws and principles of physics, chemistry and mathematics.

Studying science, and also biology, chemistry and maths can help with a medical degree in more ways than one. Having an understanding of the human body will help you immensely to understand human anatomy and diseases in detail.

Lastly, combined science subjects biology, chemistry, and physics have direct relevance to medicine and health. Also in maths, business, politics, and philosophy. Scientific themes also come up frequently in english literature and law. It has been proven for many years that studying general science will do wonders for you if you want to get into a good medical school, but also on most career paths.
