If you want to study aerospace engineering but you don’t have the right A Levels, this is the most direct route. The foundation year includes core A Level maths topics, fundamental physics and an introduction to engineering. Complete the year to the required standard and you’re guaranteed a place on a degree course. Foundation years are intensive but great fun. You’ll be treated just like any other student, with access to all the same facilities and benefits.
