Course Summary:
**Foundation courses** A foundation year can develop your skills and make it easier to get started at university. It is an extra year of study at the start of your course that leads in to a full degree programme. It’s a great option if: - You don’t have the grades for a full degree course - You have non-traditional qualifications or experience - You’re starting university after some time away from education - You’re looking for more support during the transition into university study. **Life as a foundation year student** During a foundation year you’ll learn about your chosen subject, develop your study skills and get used to university life. On successful completion of your foundation year, you’ll be ready to progress to the first year of your degree course. As a foundation year student, you’ll be a full student of the University and part of our community. You’ll have access to all our campus facilities and support. **Why choose this course** Our professionally-accredited Medicinal Chemistry courses, which include modules delivered by our School of Biosciences and Medicine, will teach you the fundamentals of medicinal chemistry and encourage you to make your own discoveries.

University life in Guildford is really great, the town and campus are warm and inviting, with a nice intimate vibe. Everyone here is so friendly and looks out for everyone else, it’s so refreshing. There's plenty to do it in the city, bear in mind some clubs can charge a fair bit on weekends, so stick to the student nights. The teaching is really strong, with approachable staff, good support on your assignments and a great library.
