Overview Our Biochemistry with a Foundation Year course is designed to help you gain the skills, knowledge and confidence you need to progress on to a degree in biochemistry. During your foundation year, you’ll be assigned an adviser from the School of Biological Sciences who’ll guide you through your course to make sure that you’re ready to progress onto the specific degree course of your choice. It’s the ideal choice if you’re looking for a solid foundation in the core subjects relating to the study of life and the processes and interactions driving life on Earth. You’ll learn alongside students from across the other Science Schools, and at the end of the Foundation Year, you’ll be equipped with the fundamental skills you need to succeed in your future studies in your chosen area of biochemistry – and to unleash your learning potential. About This Course Wherever your interests lie within the world of biochemistry, the Foundation Year will pique your curiosity and quench your thirst for answers to important scientific questions. You’ll have contact with academics and researchers from across the Faculty of Science, many of whom are world-leaders in their chosen research areas. And beyond the timetabled lecture series, you’ll have the opportunity to attend talks by guest lecturers and speakers. You’ll cover current scientific topics that have significance and importance for society, such as ageing and cellular senescence, the emergence of infectious diseases, and the rapidly developing field of biotechnology. And you’ll be encouraged to develop your critical thinking skills by evaluating sources of scientific evidence and including such sources in your own written work. At UEA, we are uniquely partnered with the Norwich Research Park, providing you with access to a learning experience that is dynamic and fascinating – and fuelled by research that is happening right here, right now. Depending on the course you choose to progress onto after your Foundation Year, the School of Biological Sciences has a number of Year Abroad and Placement Year study options.
