Chemistry is one course that can be taken with a Preliminary year
A number of preliminary courses are available to students who do not have the appropriate A-level/AS qualifications to enter the first year of a degree scheme.
Prelim. = preliminary year, Prof. = professional training (sandwich) year
This is aimed at those who cannot make a full-time commitment to studying at present, but who would like to pursue a degree in science, medicine or dentistry in the near future. Students have up to three years to complete the Preliminary Year programme on a part-time basis. The science and maths modules are taught in the daytime at Cardiff University.
The School of Engineering offers a Foundation Year programme designed to give students the necessary basic knowledge to enable them to cope with an engineering degree scheme. The Foundation Year includes aspects of mathematics, physics and information technology that are relevant to engineering.
Students seeking admission to a degree programme incorporating a Preliminary or Foundation Year should apply via UCAS. For information about entry requirements for your chosen programme of study, please contact the appropriate admissions tutor - contact information can be found on the relevant academic school pages.
