Course summary

Getting stuck into the four main disciplines of biology, chemistry, maths and physics, you’ll have the chance to get a grounding in the scientific knowledge you’ll need no matter which route you eventually decide to take. * But it’s not just about theory here. Our professional, dedicated and friendly staff are on hand to help reshape the way you learn, challenge you to rethink your own practices and equip you with the skills that will be the foundations for your further studies. * Taught through lectures, tutorials and laboratory practicals in our modern facilities, you’ll get the benefit of the staff’s expertise in both academia and industry. Optional drop-in sessions offer a great opportunity for you strengthen your knowledge and make sure you’ve got a clear understanding of all the material as you go along. * This course is designed to stretch you and get you working hard and, if you’re up for the challenge, we’ll support you every step of the way. * Outside the classroom, our academic skills tutors can help you with your writing style, structuring work or preparing for exams. You’ll also be assigned a personal academic tutor. For any issues that may have an impact on your studies or general wellbeing, you can turn to our student guidance and support officer for advice. * Examples of successful students in the past have included three graduates from this Science Extended Degree leading to a BSc(Hons) Degree who, in 2015, came top in their respective undergraduate degrees with two winning Chancellor’s prizes. (Chancellor’s Prizes are awarded to the students from each of the University’s academic schools who have achieved the best results in their final year). On successful completion of this year (you must pass all five modules), you'll be able to continue onto the first year of your degree in the following science subject areas: * Biological Sciences * Chemistry and Chemical Engineering+ * Forensic Science * Geography * Optometry++ * Pharmacy++ +Progression onto Chemical Engineering BEng(Hons) is dependent on achieving a minimum pass mark of 60% in the Maths and Physics module. Progression onto Chemical Engineering MEng is also dependent on achieving a minimum pass mark of 60% in the Maths and Physics module, plus an overall pass mark of at least 70%. ++Progression onto Optometry and Pharmacy is dependent on meeting stringent performance levels in the Science Extended Degree. You must pass all modules with an overall pass mark of at least 70%. Plus at least 70% in the Chemistry module and 70% in the Maths and Physics module. You must also successfully undertake an interview with the Optometry or Pharmacy admissions staff. I honestly cannot praise this course enough. The preparation that the Science Extended Degree gives you for your further studies is amazing. It’s run so well and at such a high level that the first years of my actual degree have been made easier. This course gives you an incredible advantage as you learn how to compile reports, gain beginner stats knowledge and overall knowledge of how university work should be carried out properly and to a high level, which in turn puts you at a great advantage for being successful at further study. ~ Paul Armitage, Paul Armitage, former Science Extended Degree student, now studying Biology (Molecular and Cellular) BSc(Hons).
