Environmental Science with a Foundation Year

In your Foundation Year you will study the physical, chemical, and biological surroundings here on Earth. You’ll discover how these natural systems are interlinked, and the effects of human influence on them.      You’ll think about questions including: - What are the greatest challenges for sustainable oceans? - What did our landscape look like in the past and what might it look like in the future? - How do I develop myself to optimise my graduate prospects?   In addition to exploring these big questions, you’ll develop the essential skills you need to prepare for undergraduate study.     Once you’ve successfully completed your foundation year you are guaranteed to transfer to the BSc Environmental Science. Depending on the modules you’ve taken, your grades and your preferences, you could instead transfer to a different BSc/MSci course in the School of Environmental Science.    **Course Structure** Our foundation year is structured to help you develop key science skills and knowledge, but also to give you the flexibility to follow your interests – both in the foundation year and throughout the course.    In your Foundation Year you will study six modules. One of these will be a year-long Environmental Science module. Two will involve numerical skills at a level that fits your ability and confidence. You will then choose three from a selection of biology, chemistry, and physics modules.    Over the year you will explore different aspects of our natural environment, helping you to discover where your passions lie. This will help you decide which BSc or MSci undergraduate course to transfer to at the end of your Foundation Year.    Your academic advisor and the course director will be on hand to support and advise you, ensuring that you make the most of the options and opportunities in this important foundation year.    For the years of study beyond the Foundation Year, please see the course pages specific to those degree programmes.   **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
