A foundation year is a one-year program for high school graduates. It is designed to bridge the gap between high school and college by providing students with the prerequisites they need to be admitted to university for an undergraduate degree program.

You may find yourself at the end of high school with a strong interest in math and science, yet unable to decide in which direction you should go. This is the time to ask yourself, what is a foundation year in natural sciences? This program prepares you for university study by giving you a strong foundation in a broad range of sciences that often includes earth sciences, life sciences, physics, chemistry, astrophysics, mathematics and technology studies. Some foundation programs are partnered with universities that offer a seamless progression to that particular school if you are able to demonstrate academic performance at a certain level.

A foundation year is also aimed at providing you with related skills necessary for personal development. Access to libraries, sports facilities, job boards, equipment and other resources are usually weaved in to the program.

Since these programs are offered by universities throughout the world, costs vary depending on location, curriculum and which institution you attend. You can collect information about costs by reviewing the websites or speaking with the admissions office of the institution you wish to attend.

Pursuing a career in the sciences offers many options. Research and development, engineering and teaching are just some of the numerous choices. Studying science can lead you to a career in medicine, or to an industry consulting position. Corporations hire scientists to create new products. Governmental jobs are also available to those with science specialties. A background in a particular field can open many doors to a rewarding career in almost any environment.

Finding your niche in one of the sciences offers many exciting professional opportunities. Foundation year programs often offer an array of flexible options, from distance learning modules to part-time study. To learn more about finding the path that is right for you, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
