Pharmacology (Including Foundation Year) BSc (Hons) (Full-time)
Our Pharmacology (including foundation year) BSc (Hons) degree is the perfect start to your university studies if you’re interested in starting a career in science, but can't meet the entry requirements for a traditional three-year degree in pharmacology. This four-year course has a built-in foundation year designed to give you the key skills in pharmacology you’ll need to advance through the rest of the course.
The course will help you pursue a career in the development and testing of new drugs for illnesses such as schizophrenia and cancer.
On the foundation year of your course you’ll become familiar with the fundamental principles of chemistry, biochemistry, biology and mathematics. You’ll learn about the essential molecules that cells consist of and the roles of cells within the body, as well as logical argument making and how to practice safely within a laboratory environment.
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 GCSE at grade C (grade 4) or above (or equivalent)
Applicants who meet the UCAS points criteria but who obtained a grade D/grade 3 in English and/or Maths at GCSE may be offered a University test in these areas.
Other applicants may have Level 3 qualifications such as A level, BTEC Extended Diploma or Access to Higher education qualifications with high UCAS points and grades, but not in the relevant subject areas (biology and chemistry) which are required to study for BSc programs in the School of Human Sciences.
