Course summary

Physics studies the fundamental forces of the Universe and the nature of waves, particles, and the structure of matter. The Foundation Year course offers an opportunity for those who have potential, but who do not possess appropriate qualifications, to develop the skills needed to progress to completing one of our degree programmes. The course is aimed at two main groups of people: Mature students (Over the age of 21) seeking a change in career OR Students obtaining A levels qualifications who have not studied Physics and/or Mathematics to A level standard. However this is not a refresher course for those with poor marks in Physics and Maths.
