Foundation Progamme (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. Building on a foundation of compulsory modules in the first year, the modules you can take become increasingly specialised in terms of sport, exercise and health-related themes. As part of our flexible teaching course, you have the opportunity to expand on your own interests through the study of ‘open’ modules in, for example, Business, Education, Languages, Geography or Politics in the second and third years.
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. 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.
