Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to enter directly onto their chosen Honours degree programme. Get ready for a thrilling career working on some of the most technically advanced vehicles in the world… This course gives you the hands-on experience you need to progress to the highest levels in the motor sports and engineering industry. The design and build of a Formula Student race-car is a key part of the curriculum - you’ll work as part of a student-led group competing in an international competition at Silverstone, renowned as a testing ground for the next generation of world-class engineers. You’ll be encouraged to join our Motorsports Club, where you’ll work on Formula Ford race car - this course is absolutely focused on delivering top flight racing and engineering professionals. This course offers an optional 48 week sandwich placement in industry. The benefit of the experience is evident in improved performance in the final year and when competing for graduate jobs. Extra-curricular activities include a motor sports club and a professionally run Formula Ford race team. We care about your employability, and from the first year we will work to ensure that when you graduate you are attractive to employers. This is done to some extent within the curriculum, but participation in our extra-curricular activities (such as UCLan Racing and Motor Sports Club) is highly recommended.
