Why study a Foundation Year at UTWSD Lampeter?

  • The Integrated Foundation Year offered by the Faculty of Humanities has been designed to help you develop the skills and subject-specific knowledge needed to undertake a degree course and specialise in a specific area.

  • Offers you an alternative route into studying with us even if your grades weren’t suitable or if you don’t meet the entry requirements of your chosen course.

  • Suitable also for those returning to education after some time away.

  • With a range of generic study skills mixed with subject-specific modules, you can progress on to degree with confidence.

  • We take an immersive approach to learning offering a diverse range of teaching approaches, including lectures, seminars, tutorials and workshop sessions.

  • You will attend small-group classes with a focus on discussion and learning activities to encourage the self-development and critical reflection accepted as key to the development of personal and professional capacities.

Course details

Modules

The modules offered on the foundation year focus on introducing you to University life and providing you with academic survival skills, such as academic writing skills, understanding literature, and research skills.

Taking into account that student choices and requirements can differ radically, as well as ensuring a rounded knowledge of Anthropology generally, the scheme offers modules covering a wide range of topics and issues. Some of the areas of study include, for example, the body, water and society, the other, materialises, field work, gender and kinship, and human evolution.

A range of modules in other disciplines is offered alongside your main subject modules. You could take modules in, for example, English, Classics, Philosophy, Creative Writing or any of our other Humanities subjects, whichever Humanities degree-programme you choose

Assessment method

One of the standout features of studying with the Faculty of Humanities in Lampeter is the excellent tutor contact you will have. Teaching is in small groups and seminar groups are also small allowing you to develop your confidence and skills in a supportive environment. Assessment methods used during the Foundation Year are wide and varied so that you experience them before progressing to Level 4 study, again helping you to build your confidence and skills base.
