Fast-track to HE and Polymaths

What is a Fast-track and Polymaths foundation course for and what should I expect?

The Fast-track and Polymaths course is aimed at preparing returners to education for degree-level study, therefore this could be looked at as a foundation course. You will learn how to study at degree level and learn how to write and present in an academic manner. You will learn how to evidence your research using appropriate referencing techniques for your subject area.

If you have any other enquiries relating to this you can contact the Fast-track Team to discuss, their contact details can be found at the bottom of the specific course page by searching the Fast-track subject area.

You can also chat with our staff directly every Wednesday from 2 pm - 4 pm and periodically throughout the working week.

Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.

Or book onto one of our Open Days or Course Advice Days to find out more and speak with the team.
