Course summary

TEF Silver

Find out more about the TEF.

Newman University has developed an innovative foundation year for their social science degrees. The pre-degree year of this four year course, if passed, leads into the same study programme as the 3 year joint honours degree course in Psychology and Counselling Studies.

This foundation year enables those unable to access the traditional UCAS tariff requirements for a three year degree, an alternative route into beginning and ultimately gaining an honours degree.

This is one of the few professional youth work courses in the West Midlands which will provide you with the opportunity to meet national standards. You will benefit from Newman’s considerable experience and reputation in the areas of teacher education, child development and community engagement and be taught by a strong youth and community work led teaching team, most of whom have had direct experience in the field and present at international conferences. Studying Youth and Community Work at Newman will not only enable you to gain professional Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC) recognition, which you require to practise as a youth worker in the UK, but you also get to choose an optional pathway in a practice-based setting.

All students begin by applying through UCAS. Students ideally need 48 UCAS points to access the programme. However, as all applicants will be invited to interview, there is opportunity to discuss any circumstances that may have affected the accrual of level three credits. Those with considerable work and life experience of a complexity that demonstrates an aptitude to study at degree level, but with no formal qualifications, will also be accepted. Different degree pathway options available at the end of the Foundation year have different entry requirements. Whilst not a condition of entry onto the Foundation Year, students wishing to enter particular routes will need to meet these by the time they complete the year.
