Course summary

TEF Gold

Bangor University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.

Find out more about the TEF.

To prepare students for our Medical Sciences degree, our Foundation Year provides the basic, but essential understanding of biological and chemical principles that underpin the field. It is an ideal course if you have an interest in Medical Sciences or a desire to enter a related career but do not currently have the necessary scientific background to enter our 3 year programme.
The Foundation Year is also designed to prepare students for our other undergraduate degree programmes, B102 Biomedical Science, B113 Medical Biochemistry and B103 Medical Biology and there is the possibility to transfer onto one of these programmes, subject to successfully passing the Foundation Year.
The Medical Sciences programme will provide a multi-disciplinary perspective of the current and developing field of pathology, medical genetics and disease management. This programme will provide students with a broad basis of scientific knowledge regarding human health and disease, of importance in modern day diagnostics.
