Course summary

On our foundation programme, you will have the opportunity to gain the skills and knowledge needed to undertake a degree while studying at a world-class university. The foundation programme is taken as a one-year course, after which you are guaranteed entry onto a range of courses (please see more about this course for details). It will provide you with the best possible grounding for entry onto our three and four-year programmes, with the topics covered being perfectly matched to subsequent stages of your course. Many of those who teach you on the foundation programme will go on to be your lecturers for the remainder of your undergraduate degree. Upon successful completion of the foundation programme, providing you pass at the required level, you are guaranteed progression onto the first year of your chosen degree subject provided you meet certain criteria (most routes require a year zero average of 50%).
