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.
