The Health Foundation Year offers an opportunity for students to enter a degree course in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences who do not meet the necessary criteria for direct entry. This is often because they have not studied the subjects required or because they have gained non-traditional qualifications. The course will provide you with the requisite science knowledge, enhance your study skills and give you an introduction to the employability skills required by health professionals.

In the ten years since the Health Foundation Year started, it has been successfully involved in the training of 20 Doctors, 32 Pharmacists, 11 Physiotherapists, 18 Nurses and 5 Midwives.

The programme for 2016/17 is listed below.

The Health Foundation Year is modular in structure and has been approved by the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and the School of Social Science and Public Policy.  You take a combination of modules to a total of 120 credits: core modules, those related to your intended degree programmes after your Foundation Year and some free choice. Modules are worth 10 or 20 credits.
