Foundation Programme (Year 0) The first year of this course is spent with the Foundation Programme developing the skills and subject knowledge required for successful study at degree level. The Foundation Year contains a number of compulsory and discipline-specific modules. Compulsory modules are designed to develop higher level learning skills and familiarise you with studying and assessment at degree level. Discipline-specific modules help lay a foundation of knowledge that you will build upon as you progress to your chosen degree course. On successful completion of the Foundation Year, you will progress to the first year of your degree, once you have achieved the grade required for progression.
