During your Foundation Entry Year you will study alongside peers from related courses, whilst you gain a broad introduction to the range of applied sciences. You’ll receive a sound foundation in basic science, increasing your knowledge and skills to a sufficiently high level to progress onto a guaranteed place on a range of science honours degree courses. During your studies you'll experience outstanding facilities. These include state-of-the-art analytical equipment in our criminalistics laboratory, our custom-designed teaching laboratories, our crime scene houses, vehicle bay, and our human skeletal teaching collections. As a biology graduate you can follow a wide range of careers related to the biosciences such as working as a research scientist or technician in biology-related employment sectors including the health and pharmaceutical industries, or on conservation and endangered species management, as well as in science writing, education, outreach and communication. In addition, biology graduates are in demand in many other employment sectors in the UK and overseas including graduate entry level into the civil service, business, accounting, sales and marketing. Many biology undergraduates will develop an interest in a specialist area of their discipline and will continue to study at postgraduate level for a Master of Science (MSc) or Research (MRes) or a doctoral degree (PhD or DPhil), whilst others choose to take a postgraduate teaching qualification or graduate entry level into medicine.
