We recognise there may be a variety of reasons why you might not have the required UCAS entry requirements to secure a place on the full degree programme. This integrated foundation year will enable you to transition onto our BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences course. It will also help you prepare for academic life at university.

As part of your foundation year, you’ll:

  • Study four clinical and applied Sciences-related modules that will enable you to understand the relationship between biology and medical science and how to apply your knowledge
  • Study an additional module that will help you develop the academic and study skills you’ll need to successfully transition from school, college or the workplace into higher education

As part of your course, you’ll:

  • Learn about how the human body functions in both health and disease
  • Discover how advances in biomedical sciences have helped in the diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of illness

At the end of your second year of study, you can choose to continue your multidisciplinary studies in biomedical sciences and gain a BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences award, or you can choose to study for a combined degree award by specialising in one of our four specific pathways:

  • BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences (Medical Biochemistry Pathway)
  • BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences (Molecular Biotechnology Pathway)
  • BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences (Pharmacological Sciences Pathway)
  • BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences (Medical Microbiology Pathway)

You'll discover how to access the extensive learning resources and support services available here at Leeds Beckett, whether you need a hand locating specialist materials in the Library, IT support or advice about personal issues.
