BSc Physical Sciences with Foundation Year - University of Birmingham

Our inspiring Physical Sciences Foundation Year is an integrated foundation degree, giving you access to our highly ranked physical sciences undergraduate courses. If you do not have the qualifications necessary to apply directly for first-year entry, this could be the course for you. The Physical Sciences Foundation Year can lead to Bachelors degrees in computer science, mathematics, nuclear science and physics (excluding theoretical physics or theoretical physics and applied mathematics). Once you’ve completed the course successfully and have met the subject-specific progression criteria, you will automatically join your chosen first-year course. The foundation year provides an excellent opportunity to study at a leading research-focused university without the required qualifications needed for first-year entry. All teaching takes place on the main Birmingham Edgbaston campus, the home of the majority of our undergraduate degrees. As such, you will have access to the same excellent facilities as other students, for example, the state-of-the-art library, sports centre and the stunning new outdoor space: the Green Heart.
