What is a Foundation Year?
We’ve developed our degrees with Foundation Year to give you an alternative route to studying a degree. Studying a course with a Foundation Year is perfect for you if you don’t have the usual academic qualifications or UCAS points necessary for normal entry onto a degree course. It is not a stand-alone qualification, but is designed to underpin specific degree programmes to which it is directly attached. So, for example, instead of direct entry onto a BA (Hons) English Literature course you’ll study BA (Hons) English Literature with Foundation Year. Once you’ve successfully completed your Foundation Year you’ll progress onto your subject specific modules.
