Program description

Biology of Infectious Disease (Including Foundation Year) BSc (Hons) (Full-time)

Why study this course?

Our Biology of Infectious Disease (Including Foundation Year) BSc (Hons) is a four-year degree that has a built-in preparatory year, designed to provide you with an alternative route into higher education if you don’t meet the entry requirements to study our standard three-year program.

Following the foundation year you’ll begin more in-depth study of infectious diseases and on graduation you’ll receive the same award and title as students on the three-year course.

Our Biology of Infectious Disease (Including Foundation Year) BSc (Hons) degree begins with a foundation year, during which you’ll examine core principles of biology, biochemistry, biology and chemistry.

You'll share you foundation year with others studying science-related degrees with a foundation year. The shared curriculum will develop your technical skills and competencies in a range of specialist areas, helping you to become a confident and well-rounded scientist capable of understanding your work in a variety of scientific contexts.
