Course Content​

Foundation Year (Year 0):
This programme can incorporate a foundation year (year 0) for those students who aspire to enrol onto the first year of a science based honours degree programme within the Cardiff School of Health Sciences, who have not achieved the standard entry requirem​en​ts, or who have not studied subjects that provide the necessary background within the scientific disciplines required to enter the first year of the chosen honours degree programme.

​Students wishing to undertake the foundation year will apply for the degree programme they intend to progress to, using the relevant UCAS code listed on this course page (under Key Facts) and apply for entry point 0 on the UCAS website. As such, students following the foundation route will take an extra year to complete their honours degree.
Further information about the foundation year can be found by clickin​g here.

The course successfully meets the curriculum recommended by the Association for Nutrition professional body. In addition it benefits from shared modules from the Dietetics and Food Science programmes. In years two and three, students are supported by the personal tutor to choose the modules which will best fit with their future career plans.
