Natural Sciences (Biology) (Including Foundation Year) BSc (Hons) (Full-time)
Our Natural Sciences (Biology) (including foundation year) BSc (Hons) will provide you with a thorough introduction to the study of science, giving you the skills you’ll need to study natural sciences, and particularly biology, at undergraduate level.
The degree is ideal if you can’t meet the entry requirements for a standard undergraduate degree or if you’re looking to build your confidence in scientific theory and techniques before going on to more in-depth study of biology and natural sciences later in your degree.
The foundation year on our four-year Natural Sciences (Biology) (including foundation year) will introduce you to key concepts in biology and provide you with the basic mathematical knowledge, scientific understanding and laboratory techniques that you’ll need to succeed when studying a science-based subject at undergraduate level.
As well as being designed to develop vital scientific skills, the foundation year will also allow you to progress into your subsequent years of study with confidence, as you’ll also be introduced to ways of improving your time management, writing and study skills.
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
