Our Science Foundation Programmes aim to provide a thorough foundation in science and general key skills to prepare you to join one of our established undergraduate courses from two Schools within the University.
This is an excellent route to a science degree if you do not have the typical entry qualifications, for example, if you are studying for A levels in subjects that are different from those usually required for our science courses. The Science Foundation Year offers a direct pathway to a variety of courses within a fully integrated programme.
You will be taught by staff from the Schools of Biological Sciences and Chemistry, Food and Pharmacy through a combination of lectures, tutorials, practical classes and workshops. You will be able to access our full range of facilities and support throughout the programme.
The skills youâll learn in the Science Foundation Year will prepare you for your chosen undergraduate course, with basic principles and concepts in biology and chemistry, problem-solving skills, underpinning skills in mathematics, and the ability to work in an academic environment as an individual and in a team.
You are guaranteed a place on your chosen undergraduate course upon successful completion of the Science Foundation Year to a satisfactory level, and will receive the same options as those who join the University directly as an undergraduate. These options include a year in industry and integrated masterâs programmes. Students who wish to leave after the Science Foundation Year will be offered a foundation degree.
