The Science Foundation Year aims to prepare students with the fundamental skills and knowledge required for successful transition into degree-level study, which may open up exciting careers and further study opportunities. Students on the Science Foundation Year study a combination of core and subject specific modules as part of an integrated degree programme. The combination of modules studied is tailored to the needs of the degree programme that students wish to progress onto after successful completion of the foundation year. Following successful completion of the course, students will then progress onto a full degree programme.
Students on all foundation programmes study a combination of core and subject specific modules during the first year as part of an integrated degree programme. The combination of modules studied is tailored to the needs of the full degree programme that students wish to progress onto after successful completion of the foundation year. Students study three modules at the start of the programme, which aim to build a foundation in mathematics and introduce key study skills required for further study. Students study a further module which introduces fundamental aspects of a specific area of science relevant to the chosen foundation year programme. Students also study an integrative module which is aligned to the full degree programme which students' wish to progress onto upon successful completion of the Science Foundation Year. For the most up to date module information, please visit the course page for this programme on our website.
The way students will be assessed will vary for each module. It could include coursework, such as a lab report or essay, written and practical exams, portfolio development, group work or presentations to name some example.
Application deadline details:
Lincoln is such a great university. The town is a great mix between the historical old city and a modern, student friendly vibe with plenty of places to eat and drink. Steep Hill has loads of lovely little boutiques and shops for students. There’s a fair few places to go out, not massively hectic but not dead. Everyone I met was incredibly friendly and interesting, and the teachers were passionate and helpful, really pushing me to work hard and further my academic studies.

Made good friends. Did actually learn a few things. Lincoln’s ok as a city. Up Steep Hill is good if you have the money and friends who have the money, otherwise it’s a bit boring and small. But if you like a small city then it’ll be great for you. Some good vintage shops too.
I don’t regret my course, but I wonder what would have happened if I’d have gone somewhere else. I think it’s definitely steered me in a direction that I can build on and I think I have developed myself rather than let the university develop me, whereas another university may have moulded me, which many people might not want.
