Electronic and Electrical Engineering (with a Foundation Year)

This course is primarily for candidates who have not studied the pre-requisite subjects needed for first-year entry, not met their expected entrance requirements due to adverse situations, a mature student returning to education or a care leaver. It is a one year course which will enable you to progress onto the first year of your chosen degree course, provided the relevant progression criteria are met. Successful completion of the course allows you to progress onto any related course within the School. Our foundation course is taught in-house by University staff. As a student on the course you will be a full member of the University, with the same access to the Students’ Union, clubs, societies, sports facilities and support departments. You will be taught through a combination of lectures, seminars, workshops and tutorials. During the year you will undertake core modules in Applicable Mathematics, Physics, Programming with Electronics, and Materials with Engineering Science. Completing a foundation year can be a real attribute to your overall degree success. It not only opens doors to courses that may have previously looked closed, but also provides a sound base on which to establish a successful academic career. Many who have completed the foundation year have also said how beneficial it was to them in supporting their transition into University life.
