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. So, as well as the Academic Practice units, which help develop your study skills for learning at the degree-level, you’ll also do three humanities units. Once you have successfully passed your foundation year you will progress directly onto Year 1 of your linked honours degree. Features and Benefits
- Each year we accept hundreds of students onto foundation year courses who have the ability to study at degree level but who don't have the qualifications to enter directly onto an honours degree.
- 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.
