Each year we accept hundreds of students onto Foundation Year courses who have the ability to study at degree level, but who don’t have the qualifications to enter directly onto an honours degree. Our Foundation Year has content that is tailored so that it is appropriate to your chosen degree and helps you to develop the study skills and academic knowledge you will need to start Year 1 of your course with confidence. Teaching is delivered via a range of methods including lectures, seminars, tutorials and, where appropriate, practical workshops, PC lab sessions, and online learning. Teaching methods depend on your chosen linked honours degree and you should expect to spend some time each week in independent study. Successful completion of the Foundation Year guarantees automatic progression onto Year 1 of the degree you have chosen to study.
