*Students who take English Language I in semester 1 will take Communication in Science and Technology in Semester 2, in place of one of the science modules (N.B. this cannot be in place of the maths module)

An academic advisor will help you choose the modules which will best prepare you for the degree programme you want to progress onto.


International Science and Engineering Foundation Programme (ISEFP)

The modules you are required to study will depend upon the degree programme that you intend to follow after your foundation year. For example, if you would like to progress onto a degree programme in chemistry you would be likely to take Introductory Chemistry and A Closer Look at Chemistry as your elective modules.

An academic advisor will help you choose the modules which will best prepare you for the degree programme you want to progress onto.
