We’ve developed this course for students who have not completed a traditional foundation course or who are not quite ready to go on to degree level, but who know which subject they wish to study. This course is the first stage of a bachelors degree – it is not a standalone course. Following the successful completion of the year you'll then progress on to the first year of the appropriate degree.

This accredited BEng in Motorsport Engineering will give you the confidence and skills you need to progress into the international world of motorsport; especially if you choose to take the year in industry.

You might be designing supercharger applications, adapting a car to be used in emergency service training (a real brief from Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service) or building a racing car for the prestigious Formula Student competition.
