AP0308 -

Inspirational Science (Core,20 Credits)

This module will teach you about important and inspirational areas of science, focusing on how chemistry and other sciences are embedded in the development of new technologies, medicines, materials and processes. The module is broken down into four main areas namely; Spectroscopy and Analysis; Drugs and Molecule, Material of the Future and Energy. Within each of these key areas you will learn about the fundamental science that underpins these important research areas, why these areas are so important to us all and how recent developments in these fields helped industry, research and understanding.

More information

AP0309 -

Research and Science Communication Project (Core,20 Credits)

This module will teach you how to expand your scientific research, science communication and team work skills through the collaborative research and presentation of a scientific research project.

AP0310 -

Introduction to Biology (Optional,20 Credits)

As Biology is the “Study of Life”, in this module we will explore different aspects of the living world around us. In the first teaching block, we will delve into evolution – how did all the different life forms we see around us come into being? How does evolution work? In order to study life, we need to have a good overview of what different life forms there are. This brings us into the realm of Biodiversity and Classification. We will give an overview of the different Kingdoms that dwell on Earth, and with whom we share this planet and are connected in multiple ways.
We then look inwards, and unravel the secrets of our genomes. Our genetic information is stored in our DNA – but how are genes organised, and how do they work? Can the study of genetics help us to understand the world in- and around us, can it help us to “improve” the world by genetic manipulation?
In the last teaching block, we focus on human beings, and explore aspects of our physiology and neurobiology. How does the human body function, how does our nervous system work?
Though the teaching is organised in three blocks (Evolution and Diversity, Genetics, Human Biology), this division is somewhat arbitrary as there are multiple links connecting these areas of study. “In the living nature, nothing happens that isn’t somehow connected to nature as a whole” (Goethe, 1749-1832) In this module, we will regularly explore these connections.

AP0311 -

Introduction to Biomedical Sciences (Optional,20 Credits)

You will receive an introduction to basic biological concepts relating to the organisation of the human organism.
You will learn to describe the molecular, cellular (cytology) and tissue (histology) organisation of mammals, with particular emphasis on humans, and explain relationships between form and function at each level.
You will find out about the basic principles of genetics including the structure and role of DNA in transmission of heritable information and the principles of Mendelian inheritance.
You will begin to describe the biochemical characteristics of living organisms and explain how the human form is built up by the physical and chemical processes of digestion, absorption and assimilation of food and how energy is supplied at cellular level by respiration.
You will learn about the concept of transport in humans by investigating gaseous exchange and transport of oxygen and carbon dioxide round the body by the heart, lungs and vascular system.
You will receive an introduction to the defence functions of the blood and characteristics of mammalian vascular systems which are important in understanding and managing disease (blood pressure, heartbeat, white blood cells, phagocytes, antibody production, blood groups).
You will be introduced to aspects of co-ordination, response and control in the human organism with reference to the processes of homeostasis and the endocrine and nervous systems.

AP0312 -

Introduction to Chemistry (Optional,20 Credits)

In this module you will develop an understanding of the fundamental principles underpinning the subject of chemistry. Through discussion of theory and engaging in practical experimentation you will improve your knowledge of the five core areas of chemistry:
1. Organic chemistry: where you will study atomic structure, bonding and reactivity of organic compounds.
2. Analytical chemistry: where you will study reactions to detect specific functional groups, alongside instrumental techniques such as mass spectrometry.
3. Molecular modeling: where you will study how to represent chemical structures using a computer, in addition to developing a better understanding of molecular geometry and isomerism
4. Inorganic chemistry: where you will study the structure and properties of metals and their complexes.
5. Physical chemistry: where you will study factors affecting the rate and progress of chemical reactions.
You will also spend time developing chemistry-focussed laboratory skills including considering the implications of risk management and safety, which is a critical skill for all practising chemists.

AP0313 -

Introduction to Food Science and Nutrition (Human Nutrition) (Optional,20 Credits)

You will learn about the biological basis of food and nutrition and will be introduced to a range of elements and compounds which are essential for life. The principles of healthy eating based on UK guidelines and the role of food in maintaining health including the role of microbiota will be explored whilst providing an understanding of the nutritional needs of a population. You will explore through lectures and laboratory practicals some important aspects of food microbiology, food processing, preservation and brewing.

More information

AP0314 -

Introduction to Forensic Science (Optional,20 Credits)

You will experience the forensic application of science to crime investigation. This module will enable you to understand how your scientific thinking and practical laboratory skills can be deployed in a real world context. You will cover how forensic science is utilised to assist a crime investigation, following a case specific example to illustrate key points along the investigation process. You will further develop your microscopy and pipette skills through laboratory practicals designed around the recovery, examination and analysis of forensic material of relevance to a particular case. Your attention to detail, precision and inquisitive mind will be core skills covered during the laboratory practical.

You will also explore how science is communicated to others. Forensic scientists have a high level of scientific understanding that underpins the forensic evidence that they give in a statement or court room. However, the audience - police, jury - aren't expected to have any scientific knowledge or experience but do need to understand how the scientific forensic evidence assists a crime investigation. This requires the forensic scientists to 'translate' complex information and relay it to others at a level that they can confidentally understand it. You will work together with colleagues in small groups to prepare a poster, conveying complex scientific information to a non-scientific audience.

Your involvement in this module will help you learn what it is to be a professional scientist, understanding the importance of observations, attention to detail and clear communication. These are key transferable skills for those in the scientific profession and are directly applicable to all of the degree programmes that you could progress onto after successful study of your foundation year.

AP0315 -

Introduction to Sport and Exercise Nutrition (Optional,20 Credits)

You will learn about the the different energy system demands of various sport and exercise modes and how this should inform nutritional support strategies. When working as a sport and exercise nutritionist it is also important to understand the underpinning psychological theories relevant to various sport and exercise modes. Therefore the ‘Introduction to Sport and Exercise Nutrition’ will give you an insight into how knowledge of underpinning physiology, nutrition and psychology can be used in a multi-disciplinary fashion to support individuals participating in various sport and exercise contexts.
