A number of our degrees are also offered with an additional foundation year (Year 0). Whether you are a school-leaver or someone considering returning to study but don’t have the entry requirements for your chosen subject, a foundation year course may be just what you’re looking for. A foundation year is the first year of a four year programme which: •provides an introduction not only to study at University but also to your chosen subject •offers you a highly supportive environment where you can develop the self-confidence, knowledge, skills and understanding for further study. We want to help you develop and succeed. This course will help you build the skills and knowledge needed for you to get into the animal industry. An introduction to the core sciences of biology, chemistry and physics in the foundation year will cement your knowledge and help develop your study skills for the three-year course ahead. You will have the opportunity to study animal breeding, pests and diseases, and anatomy in the lab as well as in the field with local animal foundations including Wildwood and Port Lympne. As part of our ‘Added Value’ programme, you will have the chance to gain further skills and collaborate with biotech companies through the Life Sciences Industry Liaison Lab and advisory companies in the industry.
