Neuroscience (Foundation Entry)
On our Neuroscience (Foundation Entry) course you’ll take a multidisciplinary approach to studying how the brain and nervous system work. You’ll receive a solid foundation in science as you develop your knowledge of how we understand and treat neurological disorders and diseases.
Neuroscience is a truly modern and multidisciplinary subject which seeks to understand the complexity of our nervous system.
Foundation entry degree courses like this one are ideal if you’ve got the ability to study for a degree but you don’t have the qualifications needed to directly enter the full honours degree programme.
During the foundation year we’ll equip you with the essential knowledge and understanding of theoretical and practical science skills you’ll need to succeed at degree level.
Why study with us
- The foundation year will provide you with an interesting and stimulating grounding in science.
- The course will enable you to gain key practical skills in our modern, spacious and well-equipped laboratory facilities.
- You’ll learn how the brain and nervous system work to alter behaviour, perception, mood and memory.
What you'll do
- Enhance your practical skills with a variety of hands-on Biology and Chemistry laboratory sessions and Physics workshops.
- Neuroscience is literally the 'science of the brain' and you’ll develop knowledge from a wide range of disciplines including biochemistry, physiology, pharmacology and psychology.
- You can use this foundation year as an opportunity to get to know other foundation students on different science-based degree programmes.
Following the pandemic, we have found that some courses benefit from a blended learning and teaching approach. Therefore, the majority of your teaching will be face-to-face on campus aside from a small amount of online teaching where we have learnt it works best.
Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of our published course information. However, our programmes are subject to ongoing review and development. Changing circumstances may cause alteration to, or the cancellation of, courses. Changes may be necessary to comply with the requirements of accrediting bodies or revisions to subject benchmarks statements. As well as to keep courses updated and contemporary, or as a result of student feedback. We reserve the right to make variations if we consider such action to be necessary or in the best interests of students.
