**Foundation courses** A foundation year can develop your skills and make it easier to get started at university. It is an extra year of study at the start of your course that leads in to a full degree programme. It’s a great option if: You don’t have the grades for a full degree course You have non-traditional qualifications or experience You’re starting university after some time away from education You’re looking for more support during the transition into university study. **Life as a foundation year student** During a foundation year you’ll learn about your chosen subject, develop your study skills and get used to university life. On successful completion of your foundation year, you’ll be ready to progress to the first year of your degree course. As a foundation year student, you’ll be a full student of the University and part of our community. You’ll have access to all our campus facilities and support. **Why choose this course** The University of Surrey is one of the UK’s leading universities for aerospace engineering. As an Aerospace Engineering student, you’ll have access to state-of-the-art wind-tunnel research facilities and be taught by world-leading experts in the field. Our close links with major companies will help develop your employment skills, and you can hone your practical, teamwork and leadership skills by becoming part of in one of our successful and dynamic student competition design teams. This course is professionally accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and the Royal Aeronautical Society, and has excellent employability prospects. 90 per cent of our graduates go on to work in professional or managerial jobs within six months after graduation (Unistats). **What you will study** Our aerospace engineering courses encompass advanced materials, design, aerodynamics, space systems, thermodynamics and the latest in computational and simulation tools. Using our extensive facilities for aerodynamics and materials testing, including our demonstrator jet engine and flight simulator, you’ll put the theory you learn into practice through challenging project work. With our research-led teaching, you’ll be guided by specialists in areas such as aircraft and environmental aerodynamics, propulsion, computational fluid dynamics and modelling of flows in gas-turbine engines (with links to our Thermo-Fluid Systems University Technology Centre).
