If you have the potential to study at degree level but you don’t meet the entry requirements, a foundation year can bridge the gap – laying the groundwork for entry into Year 1. The units you’ll study are designed to build your confidence and bring you up to speed for the rest of your chosen degree. As well as the Academic Practice units, which help develop your study skills for learning at degree-level, you'll also study a selection of humanities units. Once you have successfully passed your Foundation Year you will progress directly onto Year 1 of your linked honours degree. Below is a list of the linked honours degrees for sociology and criminology with a foundation year:
- BA (Hons) Sociology (UCAS code L303)
- BA (Hons) Criminology (UCAS code L312)
- BA (Hons) Criminology and Sociology (UCAS code LL31)
- BSc (Hons) Sociology with Quantitative Methods
- BSc (Hons) Criminology with Quantitative Methods
- BSc (Hons) Criminology and Sociology with Quantitative Methods

- Has content that is tailored so that it is appropriate to your chosen degree.
- Helps you to develop the study skills and academic knowledge you will need to start Year 1 of your course with confidence.
