    Hey!
    I'm planning on studying the science foundation year at the University of Glamorgan this September, and slightly confused about the modules that I will be taking.

    This is what the website says:
    "All students on the Science Foundation Year programme will study the following modules in one year. Modules which are worth 20 credits last for the entire academic year, while 10 credit modules are taken in either the first half (A) or second half of the year (B) only.

    Foundation Human Biology (20 credits)
    Foundation Chemistry (20 credits)
    Foundation Physical Science (20 credits)
    Learning Strategies/Study Skills (20 credits)
    Computer Literacy (10 credits) A
    Foundation Quantitative Methods (10 credits) A
    Foundation Mathematics (10 credits) B
    Foundation Statistics (10 credits) B"

    Does the list above mean that I either have to choose 1 course worth 20 credits only, or 2 courses worth 10 credits?? Will I also have to decide which one to choose when I start uni or before?

    Any help/ advice would be appreciated!

    Thanks in advance!

    yeah, we'll probably be together for the next four years seen as we're doing both the same courses. Are you looking forward to it?

    Hey guys,

    I was just wondering if this foundation year allows you to do a full 3 year degree in mathematics after you pass the year?

    I don't think you can, but if you give the uni a quick email they'll email you back with a definite answer
