    Hi there,

    I'm looking for advice on STEM, wondering someone could assist?

    I've recently moved from South Africa to the UK and I'm wanting to gain some qualifications. My subject of interest is stem. I've found a postgraduate course on the Open University but I'm not at that level yet.
    Im looking for a good place to build my foundation. Wondering where I should start?

    Also, this may sound silly but is STEM an actual subject that incorporates Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics into one subject? Or is it something else?

    I'm still currently researching about STEM and do not want to rush into anything hastily. So any information or advice on where to start would be greatly appreciated

    Kind Regards

    STEM subjects are subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics.
    Chemistry -> Science -> STEM
    Mechanical Engineering -> Engineering -> STEM
    etc..

    STEM subjects tend to be Computing/Computer Science, Maths, Physics, Biology, Chemistry and Psychology (I think). They fall into categories for Univeristy degrees like Medicine, Engineering, Biochemistry & the subjects themselves.

    I don’t think there is one specific course you can study which teaches you all STEM disciplines though

    I had a feeling that this would be the case. Having all those subject compiled into one category sounded a bit to broad. However I did find this on the Open University website.
