Foundation Degree Accreditation follows an independent and rigorous assessment of degree programmes which contain a solid academic foundation in biological knowledge and key skills, and prepare graduates to address the needs of employers. To achieve accreditation, HEIs will need to provide evidence that meets the six overarching learning outcomes, set by the RSB.
Foundation Degree Accreditation aims to: foster the development of key learning outcomes and recognise the excellence that exists in giving graduates the skills, knowledge and professional development experiences that enable successful progression to employment and/or further qualifications in the biosciences.
Interim Foundation Degree Accreditation
Interim foundation degree accreditation is available to HEIs for recently validated programmes where there have been no graduate awards.
