Program description

Sciences (Including Foundation Year) BSc Hons (Full-time)

This four-year degree includes a built-in foundation year (Year 0) that provides the knowledge necessary for entry onto one of our science-based BSc (Hons) courses. Designed for those with little to no scientific background, this course is ideal if you can’t meet the entry requirements for a standard undergraduate degree in science.

During this course some of your teaching and learning will take place in our renowned Science Centre, which is home to our Superlab, one of the largest and most advanced science facilities in Europe. Equipped with 280 state-of-the-art workstations, it’s the perfect environment for you to gain practical skills and work independently on different experiments. You’ll be taught by tutors who are experts in their fields and whose years of experience in the industry will inform you learning.

The foundation year will see you gain the knowledge and key skills you’ll need in your subsequent years of scientific studies. It serves as an introduction to the core modules that are essential for a career in science, Biology, Chemistry and Numeracy. You’ll also have the chance to study one of two optional modules, biochemistry or nutrition and sports science.

Admission requirements

In addition to the University's standard entry requirements, you should have:

  • at least one A level at grade C (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)

You may apply if you 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 (eg biology and chemistry) which are required to study BSc programs in the School of Human Sciences.

For more information about admission requirements, please visit the university website.
