The Foundation year provides a route for those who lack the required qualifications for the three year programme. The aim of the Foundation Year is to provide students with the subject knowledge, study skills and personal confidence to succeed at degree level in a bioscience subject.

The course is delivered at the Ipswich Campus, taking advantage of the teaching rooms and learning resource centre of the waterfront buildings which include the James Hehir building. The James Hehir Building is home to specialist teaching and research facilities including stem cell research laboratories, clinical skills laboratories, physiology and sports science laboratories, and an iLab, as well as general teaching laboratories and study space.

This degree will enable students to secure jobs as researchers working in universities, pharmaceutical and bioscience companies and institutes. Some graduates may progress into laboratory-based careers in clinical or technical roles which do not involve research. Additionally, the course prepares students for higher level study such as PGCE (e.g. science teacher training), Masters degree or PhD.
