Preparing Students for Degree-level Study

The Science Foundation Year aims to prepare students for degree-level study, by equipping them with the skills and knowledge needed to be successful in science, healthcare, or engineering related subjects. The course is designed to open up an exciting world of opportunities within these disciplines for students who do not meet our standard entry requirements.

The Science Foundation Year offers integrated entry routes onto a wide range of degree-level programmes in the College of Science in the areas of Chemistry, Engineering, Life Sciences, Mathematics and Physics, Pharmacy, and Pharmaceutical Science.

The Science Foundation Year provides an excellent alternative route into higher education. It allowed me to gain an overview of university life without being thrown into the deep end, and it prepared my academic skills in key subjects.
