Program Description

We offer a range of programmes which combine a foundation year with a Biological Sciences degree over a four-year course. These courses are perfect if you studied non-science subjects but now want to pursue a career in science, are returning to education after some time away and don't currently meet the requirements for direct entry onto our degree courses.

At Worcester, our science courses have a strong practical emphasis, designed to prepare you for an exciting career in the Biological Sciences - from Medical and Healthcare Sciences to Forensics.
