Hi I'm thinking of doing the interdisciplinary science course as well, the only thing I'm worried about is I read it is nothing like a normal first year at uni because of all the work, do you think that will be the case? Because having a fun student life/joining societies and making friends is really important to me, what do you guys think?
hi, i applied to the foundation year also, and im hoping to study the Beng/Meng in Civil Engineering after completing this first year.
so far i received an offer through UCAS, and my interview and selection day is tommorow!!!
Hi guys, I was actually on the Interdisciplinary Science foundation year or CFG0 as it's referred to. Was on the course year starting 2010-11. The course itself is quite challenging a lot...and I mean a lot of work to cover in such a short time. Maintaining a balance throughout the year between studying and partying is the key to success here. Do not leave work to the last minute! (Like I did lol)
Most of the year is based at Leeds City College with one lecture a week actually based on the Uni campus...I know it's not exciting but work hard and you'll be transferred onto your chosen course the following year. There is a vast amount of progression choices to choose from..nanotechnology (me ) to Astrophysics and medicine it's all there. Each progression choice has different entry requirements and compulsory modules you have to do.
Last year there were some exceptional students who did really well...like averaged 90% overall for the year...work hard and there's a chance of a scholarship. I know of two students who managed to get it.
You have some great lecturers...in particular Gary Dickinson (mathematics) and Bob (physics)..they're awesome!! You will find some modules may not be as exciting as you would like but it's important to keep up with work from day one.
Happy to answer any questions
