About Biology with Foundation Year at Liverpool John Moores University

About the Foundation Year

The Foundation Year is ideal if you have the ability to study for a degree but don’t have the qualifications to enter directly onto the Biology honours degree programme.

Once you pass the Foundation Year you will progress directly onto the first year of the honours degree. If you are a full-time UK student, you will qualify for student financial support for the full duration of your course (subject to eligibility criteria).

About the BSc (Hons) Biology degree

At LJMU we recognise that, because of the vast array of subject areas within the field of biology, you may want to get a feel for which ones interest you most before specialising. That is why we keep the degree broad based in Level 4, when you will typically cover core modules in Genetics and Evolution, Microbiology, Physiology, Ecology, Practical Skills for Biology and Fundamentals of Scientific Research.

In Levels 5 and 6, you can either continue to keep your degree broad based, or you can specialise by choosing optional modules from a wide range topics, which may include Genes and Genomes, Immunology and Infection, Developmental Biology, Ecology Field Skills, Marine and Freshwater Biology, Applications of Genetics in Health and Disease, Neurobiology and Parasitology.

One of the real bonuses of this course are the opportunities for overseas travel, for example there are currently field trips to Costa Rica to study cloud forest and coral reef habitats and to Tenerife to study southern European ecosystems.

On top of the overseas visits, you have the chance to undertake a short 135 hour work-based learning placement or a year-long industrial placement. So you will have plenty of opportunities to put what you have learnt into practice and acquire the transferable skills that employers look for.

Notes about fees for this course

The fees quoted are those for the 2018/19 year as information for 2019/20 is not yet available. The Department for Education (DfE) have recently announced that they will be freezing tuition fees for the 2019/20 academic year. However, this is still subject to the normal parliamentary approval. Once 2019/20 fees are confirmed we will update our web pages accordingly.
