Course summary

Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to enter directly onto their chosen Honours degree programme. If you’re interested in solving problems and finding out how things work, then this course is designed as an entry route onto any of UCLan’s Physics and Astrophysics degrees if you do not possess the traditional entry requirements. The Foundation Year is the same for all Physics or Astrophysics students and small class sizes ensure you will receive individual attention. You will study three physics modules and three mathematics modules which will help you develop an understanding of the fundamentals of classical and quantum physics, along with the mathematical ability to express those ideas, and the laboratory experience necessary to perform real physics experiments. Successful completion of the Foundation Year with a sufficient overall grade will allow students to progress on to any of the full BSc (Hons)/MPhys Physics or Astrophysics degrees.You will have the opportunity to study abroad, either a whole year of study with an approved international partner university, or a project within a collaborating research group, such as in Germany, Italy, Spain, South Africa, or with NASA in the USA. Many of our BSc (Hons) graduates go on to further study, such as MSc degrees in a range of topics in physics and engineering. Some choose to train in teaching (PGCE), but most will find work in industry or government laboratories.
