Find everything you need to succeed
with new Foundation Year courses at BGU

From September Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) will offer a new suite of Foundation Year courses designed to help people succeed in Higher Education.

The new Foundation Year courses offer the chance to study almost any undergraduate degree at BGU over four years, rather than the traditional three. The first year is focused on equipping learners with the necessary tools to excel in Higher Education such as critical thinking and digital skills along with boosting confidence and employability.

Throughout the year learners will be able to engage with their chosen subject through special sessions and projects. Once the first year has been completed they will then move straight onto the rest of the course without having to reapply.

The courses are open to all ages and experiences and Dr Claire Thomson, Head of BGU’s Centre for Enhancement in Learning and Teaching, whose team will be leading the new Foundation Year praised the benefits the new degrees could offer:

“The new Foundation Year options are uniquely adaptable courses that speak to the diversity of the students taking part and can be tailored based on their experience. Students will be able, on certain modules, to choose their topics and projects to match their interests and will have opportunities to experience leading learning sessions.

Our ultimate goal is to give people a chance to see that they belong in Higher Education and are an integral part of BGU community.”

In addition to the adaptable nature of the courses, the first year of all options will have no set exams and be based around supported learning. Students will have both a personal tutor, as well as a subject liaison tutor, ensuring they have the best preparation possible to succeed in their chosen path.

Aimed at traditionally low participation learners, those who potentially lack the confidence or qualifications to consider themselves capable of succeeding in Higher Education, these courses build on the continuing work being carried out by BGU to widen participation in Higher Education which has so far seen it named as the top TEF Gold rated University in that area.

If you’d like to find out more about the new Foundation Year course options, visit our Foundation Year web page, speak to a member of our Enquiries Team or join us on one of Open Days.
