**Why study this course?**
Our Biomedical Science (including foundation year) BSc (Hons) degree will prepare you for study at undergraduate level, while providing you with scientific knowledge of biomedical science and disease processes.
This four-year degree with a built-in foundation year (Year 0) is ideal if you can’t meet the entry requirements or don’t hold the traditional qualification needed to enter the three-year undergraduate degree. On graduation you’ll receive the same title and qualifications as those who study the standard biomedical science course.
**More about this course**
On our Biomedical Science (including foundation year) BSc (Hons), we'll help build your knowledge and understanding of the molecules, structures, systems and processes that underpin normal cell, tissue and body functioning. You'll be able to critically evaluate and develop ideas on issues, methodologies and processes within the biomedical science field.
During your degree you’ll be supported by experienced tutors and a number of other services at the University to help you settle in, progress academically and prepare for your future career. You’ll learn in an environment that is designed to foster confidence and motivation that will help you to succeed in your studies and beyond.
The foundation year is designed to provide the fundamental knowledge base in key disciplines, such as biology and chemistry, which is required throughout the biomedical science degree course. You will share this year with students from other foundation year courses, so you’ll get to learn alongside students with different academic interests and perspectives on the topics you study.
On completion of the foundation year, you’ll join students from the three-year biomedical science degree and study the same content. To learn more about the subsequent three years of your study visit the Biomedical Science BSc (Hons) course page.
If, at the end of your foundation year, you find yourself wanting to specialise in a different area of human sciences, there will be flexibility to do so.
