Course summary

Our FdSc in Biocience course is for people looking to work in the science industry or wanting to progress to a teaching or lecturing career. Similar to all higher level courses at UcWA, the Foundation degree is module based.

It aims to support students to acquire and demonstrate core knowledge and understanding of the scientific disciplines of bioscience and to acquire and apply skills such as analysis, synthesis, evaluation and application in the context of bioscience.

You will learn through practical examples, demonstrations and active practice in workshop situations, classes, laboratory experimentation, work placements and fieldwork. Work placement experiences can either be with a student's existing employer or with an organisation participating in the programme.

Other skills such as English, maths and IT are developed throughout the course, for example the Biomeasurement module develops maths and IT skills.
