    It is ideal if you don’t have the formal qualifications to apply directly to the science degree of your choice, or feel you have studied the wrong A Levels or vocational qualifications for the career path you wish to pursue. The Foundation Entry year is studied at Runshaw College, with subsequent years studied at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) in Preston.
