EPS Futures at University of Birmingham - UCAS

Course summary

EPS Futures is a funded foundation year that leads directly on to our highly regarded Engineering and Physical Sciences degrees. A foundation year is an extra year at university, before the normal first year, to ensure you have the knowledge to succeed in your studies. The course will teach you the required knowledge in Maths and Science, equivalent to A-level standard. This means even if you took the wrong subjects post-16, or did not achieve the grades to be considered directly for first year, you still have the opportunity to study at the University of Birmingham. EPS Futures is a step towards your future in Chemistry, Computer Science, Engineering, Material Science, Maths or Physics. EPS Futures is a special version of our foundation year which is designed especially for students from areas where a low percentage of young people go to university and comes with significant financial and educational support, including a one year tuition fee waiver. If you have potential to succeed in our courses, but your specific circumstances mean you are not yet ready to enter the first year, this course is designed for you. Please make sure you check the entry requirements on our website to see if your personal circumstances make you eligible for this course. If you are not eligible for this course, you may still be eligible for our other foundation year courses.
