Foundation Programme

Integrated Foundation degrees at Queen Mary provide students with alternative routes onto undergraduate degrees. While in your foundation year, you will have access to all the University's facilities and will be a full-time student.

Our BSc Biological Sciences with Foundation degree combines a foundation year with a traditional university degree into an integrated four-year programme (1+3). Successful completion of the foundation year and meeting the progression requirements guarantees you a place on a relevant degree programme without having to re-apply through UCAS.

The BSc Biological Sciences with Foundation degree is open to home, EU and international students. UK and EU foundation students are eligible to apply for funding through the Student Loans Company. Queen Mary offers tailored pathways for subjects across science and engineering.

Below is the details of our Biology programme, including which degrees you can progress onto.

International Science and Engineering Foundation Programme

We also offer an International Science and Engineering Foundation Programme, which is a one-year programme that offers pathways to a range of undergraduate degrees in science.

This programme is for international students only, whose highest level of study in their own country is not equivalent to A-Level qualifications. The programme will help you achieve the right academic level to progress onto an undergraduate degree, as well as improve English language and academic skills.
