Course summary

The BSc Social Sciences with Foundation Year will introduce you to the main academic ideas, theories and issues within the social sciences and help you understand, analyse and write about contemporary debates. You will receive intensive support to develop the skills and knowledge required to undertake undergraduate studies.This programme will build your confidence and give you the core knowledge and key skills you need to succeed at university. You will also get a taste of the subject area you are interested in and deepen your understanding of the career potential of your chosen subject.Upon successful completion of the Foundation Year, you can automatically progress on to our three-year, full-time, evening study BSc Social Sciences.We also offer part-time Foundation Year degrees which allow you to spread out your Foundation Year studies over two years. As the 'Foundation Year' is made up of 120 credits, as a part-time student you can take 60 credits in each of your first and second years before starting the main four-year BSc Social Sciences. This means that you can take six years to complete the part-time degree with Foundation Year.**Highlights**- Birkbeck has been helping people access higher education for nearly 200 years.
