Studies in Science with Foundation Year

This extended degree is a science conversion course designed for high-achieving students who wish to progress to a degree in a scientific discipline but have not taken the prerequisite science and mathematics subjects at A-level. During the foundation year, you'll receive an intensive introduction to the academic skills that are necessary for success as a science undergraduate. You'll develop a knowledge and understanding of facts, concepts and principles within and across each of the scientific disciplines. You also gain skills for academic and scientific enquiry in practical, laboratory and fieldwork. On successful completion of the foundation year, and subject to meeting the specific requirements for progression, you’ll continue to year one of your chosen degree course including, biology, chemistry, engineering, mathematics, environmental science, food science and nutrition or psychology. Please note, this course is not a progression route for those interested in studying medicine, dentistry or healthcare.
