  • Life Sciences Foundation Year

    If you don’t have the grades for your chosen undergraduate course, you’re not sure which subject you’d like to take, or you’re returning to study after some time away, you may want to consider our integrated foundation year.

    If you successfully complete the Foundation Year, the flexibility of the course allows you to progress onto a range of exciting degrees in the School of Life Sciences. To prepare you for whichever course you pick, you learn both practical and academic skills in biology, chemistry and mathematics, giving you the perfect grounding for your studies.

About our courses

For all of our subjects, we run a three-year BSc undergraduate degree and an integrated Masters degree (MSci), which involves an extra research-focused year of study. We also offer a Foundation Year, which upon successful completion, allows you to progress onto our range of exciting undergraduate courses.
