Students on all foundation programmes study a combination of core and subject specific modules during the first year as part of an integrated degree programme. The combination of modules studied is tailored to the needs of the full degree programme that students wish to progress onto after successful completion of the foundation year.
Students study two core modules at the start of the programme, which aim to build a foundation in mathematics and introduce key study skills required for further study. Students also study two further modules which introduce fundamental aspects of specific areas of science relevant to the chosen foundation year programme. Students will also study an integrative module which is aligned to the full degree programme which students' wish to progress onto upon successful completion of the Science Foundation Year.
Following successful completion of the foundation year, students will then progress onto a full degree programme. This means students will study for a total of four years for a standard degree, or five years if they take an integrated Master’s degree. Course specific information on the full degree programmes within the School of Life Sciences can be found within our course pages.
The way students will be assessed will vary for each module. It could include coursework, such as a lab report or essay, written exams, portfolio development, group work or presentations to name some examples.
Practical exams: 0%
Written exams: 50%
