Biological Sciences Foundation (1+3)

Intended for adult learners or undergraduates who wish to take up Biology but do not have the appropriate subject background, Biological Sciences offers a foundation year at nearby Carmel College. This is not a programme in itself but acts as a springboard onto other Life Science degrees. This deferred choice programme means that you have the flexibility and freedom to switch to your chosen degree after completing the foundation year (Year Zero). The aim of this programme is to make you an expert in one particular field with the ability to cross discipline boundaries, a highly attractive prospect to employers. Year Zero comprises introductory modules in Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics at Carmel College. Years One, Two and Three will continue at Liverpool following the chosen area of interest through to BSc (Hons) completion. Further information about progression subjects can be found on the Carmel College website.
