Top Foundation Year Programs in Life Sciences

A Foundation Year is a preparatory program that takes about a year to complete. It is often offered to foreign students in order to help them acclimate to a new culture and language, but it is also available for students who are not quite ready for a demanding college education.

When studying biological & life sciences, students learn different characteristics of natural science. Depending on the area of focus, students may study the human body, plant biology, or animal science in order to help with real-world problems.
