Do I need to do a foundation year?
Foundation years are designed to give students a 'boost' if they do not meet the requirements for the 3-year degree course. They offer targeted subject knowledge and essential study skills to help you succeed in higher education. You do not necessarily have to complete a foundation year, it will depend on the entry criteria for your course and the academic, personal and professional experience you offer as a prospective student. For information about the entry requirements for your course, please visit our subject areas page.
Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.
You can find out more about our application and admissions processes on our application and admissions page. Alternatively, you can call us on 01204 903 394 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
