You learn not only practical skills, but also to keep effective records, analyse data, design and plan procedures. You work both independently and with others.
**You learn through**
- core lectures
- laboratory work
- small group academic tutorials
In the foundation year, youâll attain the academic and practical skills required for level 4 study. Youâll build your confidence in biology, chemistry and maths, and apply your theoretical knowledge in practical lab sessions. Youâll also familiarise yourself with Sheffield Hallamâs staff and facilities â ensuring that youâre fully prepared to begin as an undergraduate.
