The Foundation in Science is a 1+3 year programme that results in direct progression to the undergraduate degrees offered within the Faculty of Science. This rigorous programme provides students with a strong academic background that will result in enhanced language, mathematics, critical thinking and study skills.  

Students on this programme also chose from a range of elective modules that provide the opportunity to sample topics related to their chosen undergraduate pathway such as chemistry, ecology, computer programming or psychology.

The BSc programme is distinct from the MPharm degree. You will study core modules delivered by the School of Pharmacy, the Division of Biomedical Sciences and the School of Biosciences, as well as optional modules from both inside and outside of the Faculty of Science. For example, in the final year you can take advanced modules in areas such as drug discovery, drug design and molecular pharmacology, as well as optional modules in areas such as business, entrepreneurship and marketing.
