Foundation Degree in Life Science Laboratory
This course is all about training laboratory technicians and scientists for industry and was written after extensive consultation with local industry.  The degree is validated by the university of Kent and successful students can progress to the BSc (Hons) top up at KSRC or to Biomedical science at the University of Kent.

 

All students who have so far graduated with an FdSc for KSRC have progressed into industry in Kent or further afield and many are still in their first job after four years.

 

The course is available full time (two years) or part time ( approximately 3.5 years) and we are able to give accreditation for skills already learned in the workplace.

 

Student feedback has been very positive about the relevance of the course to the workplace.

 

Single module or part qualification.
Some students will not wish to take the complete two year course but it is possible to register for one or more workplace related modules and take these along with the other students, for example Microbiology and Advanced Microbiology or Advanced Laboratory Skills which includes immunological, DNA and analytical techniques.
