What will I learn?

The Science Foundation Year aims to prepare students for degree-level study, by equipping them with the fundamental skills and knowledge required for successful transition into degree-level study, which may open up exciting careers and further study opportunities. Students on the Science Foundation Year study a combination of core and subject specific modules as part of an integrated degree programme. The combination of modules studied is tailored to the needs of the degree programme that students wish to progress onto after successful completion of the foundation year. Following successful completion of the course, students will then progress onto a full degree programme.
