What is a degree with a Foundation Year?
They are four-year courses which have a foundation year at the start to give you academic and practical experience, designed to give you the skills to successfully complete your chosen degree and get the career you want. The foundation year will:
- Give you knowledge in the subject you want to study
- Build your confidence, and help you get to know your personal strengths
- Develop your ability to adapt your knowledge and skills to new situations, annd to the workplace
Once you have successfully completed the foundation year, you will move onto the main degree programme you are studying.
Throughout all your studies you will be given personal study and career support, in friendly community, where you will have the chance to develop your interests outside your subject of study.
