Course summary

Bioscience is a broad and fascinating subject area covering plant and animal physiology, molecular biology, bioinformatics, diseases, ecology genetics. This course will provide you with a thorough grounding in the basic core skills and concepts while module options will enable you to specialise in areas that are of interest to you. A number of our degrees are also offered with an additional foundation year (Year 0). Whether you are a school-leaver or someone considering returning to study but don’t have the entry requirements for your chosen subject, a foundation year course may be just what you’re looking for. A foundation year is the first year of a four year programme which: •provides an introduction not only to study at University but also to your chosen subject •offers you a highly supportive environment where you can develop the self-confidence, knowledge, skills and understanding for further study.During this first part of your four year course, you will study the basic theoretical principles of the biological and physical sciences, gaining practical experience in fieldwork and the laboratory, and you’ll develop the essential interdisciplinary skills necessary for your future in higher education. The foundation year will give you the opportunity to develop your skills and science-specific knowledge to provide a firm base on which to build your future studies. You will be taught in a supportive, friendly and encouraging environment, learning key concepts in biology, chemistry and physics before undertaking more in depth study of biology and chemistry and learning basic statistical tests. You will also undertake a small research project as part of your studies.
