Biological Science (Including Foundation Year) BSc (Hons) (Full-time)
Why study this course?
Our Biological Science (Including Foundation Year) BSc (Hons) degree is designed to give you the opportunity to enter higher education if you can’t meet the requirements or don’t hold traditional qualifications required to enter a three-year undergraduate degree.
This four-year course has a built-in foundation year (Year 0) to help you improve your study skills and provide you with the fundamental scientific knowledge you’ll need to enter an undergraduate degree in human sciences. You’ll graduate with the same degree title and award as students on the traditional three-year route.
Our Biological Science (Including Foundation Year) BSc (Hons) degree will equip you with intricate skills necessary to interpret and analyse biological data.
Your foundation year will be shared with students from other disciplines, which will provide the perfect opportunity to learn more about other areas of human sciences and allow you to consider different perspectives. The focus of this year will be on developing your study skills in the context of biochemistry, biology, chemistry and generic scientific studies.
In addition to the University's standard entry requirements, you should have:
- At least one A level (or a minimum of 32 UCAS points from an equivalent Level 3 qualification, eg BTEC Subsidiary/National/BTEC Extended Diploma)
- English Language and Mathematics GCSEs at grade C (grade 4) or above (or equivalent eg Functional Skills at Level 2). If you meet the UCAS points criteria but have obtained a D (grade 3) in English and/or Maths at GCSE you may be offered a University test in these areas.
To study a degree at London Met, you must be able to demonstrate proficiency in the English language. If you require a Tier 4 student visa you may need to provide the results of a Secure English Language Test (SELT) such as Academic IELTS.
