Course summary

Do you want to become a civil engineer, but lack the normal entry requirements for one of our honours degrees? Perhaps you've shown evidence of good academic potential, but don’t have sufficient qualifications or have been out of formal education for a while. This new four year degree route incorporates a foundation year that is broadly equivalent to mathematics and physics A level and includes a project and introductory engineering topics.* Progress onto the first year of a professionally accredited civil or civil and coastal engineering degree course, guaranteed provided you pass the foundation year at the required level.* We have an established track record of students progressing from the foundation year to success in their chosen degree course. * Gain a gentle introduction to mathematics and science, essential for success on our civil engineering courses.* Benefit from material specifically for civil engineering students including an appropriate project in term two.* Learn from our professionally qualified teaching staff and researchers. You’ll be taught by some of the same tutors who will teach you later in the degree. 97 per cent of our students say our staff are good at explaining things.* Our friendly staff operate an open door policy and tutors are more than happy to discuss your work and offer assistance.* Discussions with your lecturers allow you to make an informed choice about which degree to select towards the end of your first year of study.* The foundation year is an integral part of the extended degree. Completion of the foundation year will not lead to a separate award or qualification its own right but will provide access to Year 1 of your degree.
