The Foundation Framework offers a new and exciting route into studying for a degree, attracting ambitious and driven students who are willing to learn and advance, no matter what their educational background. If you have non-standard qualifications or do not quite meet the admissions requirements for the BA Childhood and Youth, The University of Northampton can offer you a fantastic opportunity to study a four year BA Childhood and Youth programme which includes a Foundation Framework that will help you develop the subject knowledge and academic skills you need in order to successfully progress to the full award. The Foundation Framework provides a practical and group-based approach to learning that supports your development and your transition to Higher Education, whilst introducing you to key ideas and skills used by professionals working in the area of Childhood and Youth. We are also committed to engaging you with specialist Childhood and Youth modules from the outset, whilst extending support into your second year of study (Stage One). The fee for the Foundation Year is £6300; thereafter standard fees apply. All of your essential reading will be available from the University's Library which means that all your essential course reading materials are available for free when you start with us. Join us in September 2018 and be the first to experience student life at the University’s brand-new Waterside Campus. Come along to one of our Open Days to find out more.
