About Natural History (Including foundation year) at University of South Wales

The foundation course is designed for applicants who do not meet the admissions criteria for the Natural History degree. You'll start by completing a foundation year, which provides well structured support, allowing you to develop your scientific skills and knowledge. Following successful completion of the foundation year, you will progress to the first year of the BSc (Hons) Natural History degree.

You'll study the principles of natural history, taxonomy, ecology and biology as well as learning about the scientific research process and data analysis.

The Natural History course has a strong practical field element for you to gain key skills in a range of environments. Presently, students go on field courses to Pembrokeshire, Iceland, and on the optional expedition to Botswana*.

Through the study of habitats and environments, you will learn to identify animal behaviour and ecological interactions. Complementing these areas are modules on digital photography and film-making, allowing you to record and communicate the wonders of the natural world that you will experience during the course.
