Foundation Year in Computing at De Montfort University is the first year in an integrated four year programme of study, which includes an undergraduate degree. It provides an introduction to computing and information technology. This course allows those without the necessary qualifications to be able to study towards an undergraduate computing course. If you missed the chance to go to university after school, if you’re looking for a change of career, or if you’re a parent planning to return to employment, our foundation in Computing is the ideal course. Our software is often accessible via remote access, enabling you to work from home when there are no timetabled sessions. The course covers the basics of cutting-edge IT topics, such as computer animation, as well as more familiar office applications, such as spreadsheets and databases. Staff and students work together in a friendly and supportive workshop environment.
