Course summary

The foundation year provides a route onto a biology or chemistry degree if you don't have the qualifications or have not studied advanced level subjects sufficiently related to your course of choice. After successful completion of the Foundation Year in Biology and Chemistry, you can progress on to one of the relevant BSc (Hons) degrees:

  • BSc (Hons) Animal Behaviour and Conservation
  • BSc (Hons) Biology
  • BSc (Hons) Microbiology and Molecular Biology
  • BSc (Hons) Zoology
  • BSc (Hons) Chemistry
  • BSc (Hons) Pharmaceutical Chemistry
Whichever route you take, you’ll have the skills and understanding you need to undertake further study or get started in your career. Features and benefits
  • Provides a route onto your chosen degree course if you don't meet the current entry requirements.
  • Foundation years are designed to make undergraduate degrees more accessible to those who are under-represented in higher education, for example, those with non-traditional qualifications.
  • Course content is tailored so that it is appropriate to your chosen degree.
  • Helps you to develop the study skills and academic knowledge you will need to start Year 1 of your course with confidence.
  • You will be eligible to apply for student finance in the same way as other undergraduates.
  • Explore the topics and issues that shape the world around us, and choose from a range of exciting and rewarding specialisms within animal behaviour, conservation and biology.
  • Develop practical skills in the laboratory and in the field, both in the UK and overseas – that could include fieldwork in Portugal, Tanzania, Kenya or South America, subject to national and international travel restrictions.
  • Learn in high-spec laboratories, including a specialist microbiology and cell/molecular biology lab, a DNA-sequencing lab, specialist animal behaviour facilities with Ethovision and Observer software, invertebrate behaviour, freshwater and terrestrial ecology labs, and controlled environment plant growth chambers.
