Course summary

This route offers you a four year (full-time) degree course, which will include opportunities for you to engage with the subject area of your choice, to select from a range of subjects to broaden your knowledge and understanding, and will provide structured study skills support as you build your confidence to study at degree level. You will be taught alongside other students studying the Foundation Year from Social Sciences, Languages & Linguistics, Education, Religion & Philosophy and Media. The Foundation Year is delivered across three 10 week terms. Where possible we focus teaching on a single day, to permit flexibility, and give you plenty of time to engage in other supported learning activities and enjoy the range of resources and activities available to you. Levels 1-3 are timetabled across the full week and run across two semesters. You will have the opportunity to explore a variety of academic disciplines, encountering a wide range of subjects and ideas. You will engage in a range of teaching and learning activities, including lectures, seminars, group work, workshops and online learning.Passing your first year guarantees progression onto any of our undergraduate degrees offered with an integrated Foundation Year.If you wish to study two academic subjects in depth our Joint Honours degree programmes are a great way to do this. At York St John you will be taught by enthusiastic and experienced staff who are active as scholars and researchers in their specialist areas. Combining Creative Writing and English Literature degree programmes at York St John provides you with an opportunity to explore the multi-faceted world of literature while enjoying the creative freedom of one’s own imagination, and improving writing, communication and research skills. We are bombarded with words and surrounded by stories – stories told to inform us, to entertain us, to unnerve us, to make us cry, to make us laugh, to make us buy things. Understanding how stories work – and how they appeal to us, persuade us and affect us – is part of understanding the world we live in.
