Overview At UEA, we believe everyone should have the chance to study at degree level. If you have a passion for your subject, but for whatever reason you don’t yet have the grades required for the three-year programme, our Foundation Year is a great choice. You’ll undertake an intensive and exciting year of study, focusing on subjects that interest you, while also developing key study skills. We offer a rigorous but supportive teaching and learning experience that is also very rewarding. When you successfully complete your Foundation Year, you’ll be perfectly placed to move onto the BA Film and Television Studies degree, or you can request to transfer onto one of the other undergraduate courses offered by the Faculty of Arts and Humanities. About This Course You’ll study with dedicated lecturers from UEA’s Interdisciplinary Institute for the Humanities, exploring a wide range of academic subjects including Literature, History, Philosophy, Film, Television and Media, American Studies, Politics and the History of Art. As well as gaining a sound theoretical basis for your continuing studies, you’ll discover new subjects and topics throughout your Foundation Year. You’ll be actively encouraged to develop your own scholarly interests and ideas so you can move onto the degree that’s the best fit for you. We'll provide you with an accessible, but challenging environment in which you can cultivate your study skills, gaining essential knowledge of many of the concepts, methods and techniques you will need in order to succeed on your future degree pathway. We'll engage with you closely to support you as you work towards your own individual learning goals. Disclaimer Course details are subject to change.
