There’s always another way to follow your passion. If you don’t quite have the entry requirements to study geography at Leicester, this STEM Foundation Year degree is for you. Our integrated Science, Technology and Engineering (STEM) Foundation Year degrees are aimed at students who wish to study a STEM subject, such as physics, but don't have the traditional entry requirements. The course is run on the University of Leicester campus like any other, and you will be studying alongside other students who applied for, and slightly missed out on, a place on a course similar to yours. In the first year of this course you will all be working towards passing a foundation year (year 0), which will enable automatic progression onto year 1 of any of our BSc Geography courses. By completing the Foundation Year you will automatically progress onto the first year of your chosen degree. The course strongly emphasises the development of essential professional and personal skills, which are necessary throughout your studies and beyond. During your Foundation Year you will join our student community and be able to enjoy all aspects of the University of Leicester student experience. You will be able to join the Students’ Union, use our academic and leisure facilities, live in our accommodation and access all our support services. You will have a personal tutor to support you.
