We offer Foundation Years on a number of our unique undergraduate degree programmes.

A Foundation Year could be an option if you do not meet the entry requirements for your chosen degree programme, or if you have qualifications for subjects that differ to the subjects needed. The content of the Foundation Year is designed to ensure that you progress directly into Year 1 of the linked degree programme with confidence, and will enable you to gain the skills needed for your chosen degree.

The year provides students with the opportunity to reflect on their existing abilities, and to further develop key academic and study skills. It also allows students to learn about employment prospects in their chosen area of interest.
