Course details
Course UCAS code: F108
Qualification type:
  • MChem, Full-time , Duration: 5 Years
Course Summary:
The University of Southampton Science Foundation Year is designed to provide you with a route to a science degree if you do not have the traditional entry qualifications. This programme may suit you if you are studying for A levels in subjects different from those normally required for these degrees. It may also interest you if you are a mature applicant, with skills and experience from employment and can show recent study, or if you come from a part of the world where the education system is different from the British A level system. Successful completion of the year guarantees progression to the next stage of your degree. The year will develop your understanding of the principles on which the sciences are based and the mathematics underpinning these disciplines, and will enable you to apply scientific principles to solve problems. The full-time programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, workshops, tutorials, laboratory sessions and private study. Assessment is mainly by unseen written examination and a variety of coursework assignments.
Modules:
Whatever degree course you are aiming for, you will take modules in biology, chemistry and mathematics. These disciplinary modules are studied for the whole year and are assessed through examination. The examinations held in January carry 40 per cent of the marks and those held in June carry 60 per cent of the marks for each of these modules. Additionally, you will study a coursework module which integrates elements from the different disciplinary modules along with a study skills module, both of which are assessed by a range of approaches.
Assessment Methods:
Our students acquire knowledge and understanding through a combination of lectures, tutorials, laboratory experiments, coursework and individual and group assignments. You will develop the transferable skills for degree success.
Application deadline details:

15 January

The University of Southampton is a fantastic university which undertakes world-class research and amazing teaching. I have experienced first-hand the enthusiasm and passion of my lecturers and seminar tutors. The campus is particularly brilliant due to the large number of facilities based directly on campus such as the GP, Costa, Banking etc. In addition, the campus is incredibly green and is filled with nature and animals. The pastoral care is also very good and so it is easy to feel welcome at this institution.
