Course summary

TEF Silver

University of Plymouth has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

Find out more about the TEF.

The BA English and Creative Writing with Foundation is a four year programme of study that includes a foundation year which offers access to Humanities education to students regionally and nationally who do not have the standard entry profile for Year 1 BA study. Equally, the programme is designed for those returning to study who have relevant work/professional experience but not the required academic profile for Level 4 entry. It is also suitable for Level 3 learners whose subject choice does not include the necessary background, but who are otherwise academically strong. The quality of our teaching, as demonstrated in NSS results, and a real understanding of the skills needed for University education, enable us to prepare students for the rigours of a four year degree in highly effective and stimulating ways.
