Entry onto any of the 3 year BSc or 4 year MSci programmes in the School of Biology detailed above is possible for foundation year students, subject to progression regulations.
The Science Foundation Programme is designed for both United Kingdom and international students whose school leaving qualifications do not meet the current admissions' requirements for entry to undergraduate Science programmes in English universities.
It offers an approved entry route, preparing students academically so that they can proceed to the degree of their choice. Students who successfully complete the Foundation Programme will be guarantee progression to many BSc/MSci degrees in the following Schools:
You will study mathematics and science subjects, which are appropriate for your chosen undergraduate degree. This will provide you with an appropriate background to enter the first year of a degree programme.
Students benefit from a wide range of teaching and learning styles - from traditional seminars, practicals and lab activities, lectures and tutorials to state-of-the-art multimedia and world wide web systems. All teaching is carried out on University Park campus by the same academic staff who teach on the main degree programmes - this helps to ensure the high standards that you would expect from The University of Nottingham.
All students receive tutorial support and international students also have the opportunity to improve their written and spoken English skills at the University`s Centre for English Language Education (CELE).
