The foundation year will introduce you to study at university and your chosen subject. It also provides a highly supportive environment where you can develop your self-confidence. Studying bioscience will provide you with the skills in solving some of the biggest challenges faced by people and the planet including fighting diseases, protecting the environment and feeding a growing population. You’ll develop the skills to collect and analyse scientific data independently as you research topics of your own choice, often with specific employment goals in mind. Teaching draws on the expertise and experience of our diverse and multi-disciplinary teaching team. This means you will be working with lecturers who have experience in integrating knowledge and applied skills across disciplinary boundaries. This is key to modern scientific discovery and will give you the transferrable skills to make you a flexible and attractive candidate for potential employers. You’ll gain practical and employment-relevant skills in our state-of-the-art laboratories and have the chance to get involved in current research being undertaken in a variety of core topics specifically relevant to animal biology, physiology and ecology. In addition to lectures, seminars, and workshops, you’ll complete intensive practical weeks and produce a CV that will evidence your skills to employers. Top reasons to study with us
