Studying at Hull means you will benefit from research-informed teaching and excellent facilities in the department, and you have the opportunity, especially in your final year, to participate in original research-based projects. Our state-of-the-art, industry-standard facilities include the new biomedical research facility within the new Allam Building, the 33,000 litre tropical aquaria, and new environmental genomics laboratories. The emphasis of this programme is on the acquisition of knowledge of biology and key skills in practical laboratory and field studies, plus IT and communication skills. The Foundation Year is ideal if you do not have the academic qualifications for direct entry on to the course. You'll study a range of modules designed to prepare you for degree-level study.
