  • Core modules
    • GEES002S Study and Mathematical Skills for Foundation Science

      This module is designed to enable learners to adapt to the learning environment of Higher Education by developing an independent, reflective and self-managed approach to learning, study and study skills, scientific writing, time management and mathematical skills for the study of science.

    • MATH019S Mathematics and Statistics for Science

      This module provides the basic mathematical background to enable learners to progress to honours degree programmes in Science.

    Optional modules
    • PHY009S Physics 1

      This module introduces students into the world of physics and its fundamental importance as the cornerstone of science. Little prior knowledge of science is required and the emphasis is on applying the principals of physics in all areas of science with many hands-on learning experiences.

    • CHM009S Chemistry 1

      This module introduces students into the world of chemistry and its fundamental importance as a cornerstone of science. No prior knowledge of science is required and the emphasis is on applying the principals of chemistry across a wide subject area, with many hands-on learning experiences.

    • BIO012S Biology 1

      This module introduces students to the study of biology and its fundamental importance as a cornerstone of modern science. No prior knowledge is required or assumed. The emphasis is on understanding some of the core principles of biology, and applying these across the breadth of the subject. To ensure that key practical skills are developed, the module will incorporate many hands-on learning experiences.

    • PHY010S Physics 2

      This module is designed to build on the knowledge, understanding and skills inculcated in PHY009 and to provide an introduction to the fundamentals of thermodynamics, environmental physics, nuclear physics, AC Theory and magnetics, at a level sufficient for entry to the degree programmes offered by the Faculty of Science and Engineering.

    • CHM010S Chemistry 2

      This module is designed to build on the knowledge, understanding and skills inculcated in CHM009 and to provide an introduction to the fundamentals of organic Chemistry at a level sufficient for entry to the degree programmes offered by the Faculty of Science and Environment, including the Chemistry Degree programmes.

    • BIO013S Biology 2

      This module builds on the core ideas introduced in BIO012S, introducing a range of additional biological concepts. There will be a strong emphasis on applying scientific principles to a wide range of topics in biology, including many hands-on learning experiences to ensure that key practical skills are developed.
