Course summary

A foundation degree is a degree-level qualification that takes two years to complete, and is equivalent to the first two years of a traditional honours degree. Foundation degrees focus on relevant, work-based skills within a particular career route or profession, and are designed to increase employability and progression opportunities. Employers are actively involved in the development of foundation degree programmes to ensure you are ready for employment when you complete your studies. At the end of a foundation degree you have the option to ‘top-up’ your qualification with an additional third year of study to convert it into a full honours degree. This foundation degree will equip you with the skills to progress and succeed in a variety of careers within business, providing you with experience in disciplines such as finance, management and marketing. You will develop a broad and transferable skillset, enabling you to seek employment in almost any sector upon completion, as well as opening up enterprise opportunities. You will refine your research, leadership and management skills, and a focus on professional and personal development means that you will develop critical and reflective practice, ensuring that you will be a success in any area you choose when you graduate. On successful completion of the foundation degree, you could progress onto the BA (Hons) Leadership and Management at University Centre South Devon. The full-time and part-time course has one start point in September.
