This course is designed for students from a range of educational backgrounds who need an additional year of study prior to their undergraduate degree. You should take this course if any of the following apply to you:
- You haven’t met the entry requirements for direct entry on to the first year of a degree
- You have less than 13 years of schooling
- You need to improve your academic skills to join an undergraduate course
The course is classed as an integral part of a 4-year degree, and takes place before the first year of your chosen degree. After your total four years of study (five if you take a work placement) you will graduate with a BA or BSc (Hons) combined degree in the same way as your classmates on your specific degree.
This foundation course can be tied with a range of our excellent degrees in subject areas such as business and management, accounting and finance, marketing, or hospitality (see ‘Progression and degree options’ below).
