Course summary

A number of our degrees are also offered with an additional foundation year (Year 0). Whether you are a school-leaver or someone considering returning to study but don’t have the entry requirements for your chosen subject, a foundation year course may be just what you’re looking for. A foundation year is the first year of a four year programme which: •provides an introduction not only to study at University but also to your chosen subject •offers you a highly supportive environment where you can develop the self-confidence, knowledge, skills and understanding for further study. A foundation year helps you develop the study skills and self-confidence needed for higher education when you don’t reach the entry requirements for your subject. Our Canterbury Campus, located in a UNESCO World Heritage site and right in the heart of a beautiful cathedral city, is the perfect place to study History. The academic team are all professional historians, active researchers and published authors of national and international acclaim. The course they’ve designed allows you to follow your interests wherever they may lead. In your second and third years you can study a specific period or mix-and-match several.
