Degrees with a foundation year

Do you want to study for a degree but don't have the required qualifications? Or want to return to study after a few years in the workplace, raising a family or travelling? Then the Extended Foundation Degree Programme (EFDP) or Extended Degree Programme (EDP) could be for you.

In the foundation year (Year 0) you choose one of four entry routes, before progressing onto a full foundation or bachelor's degree, with a placement year working in industry included. It's a great option for students without traditional qualifications.

"The great strength of the extended degree programmes is that they give the opportunity for students to study in higher education who may not otherwise have the chance."

Dr Moira Harris
Course Manager


If you achieve a 40% pass in your foundation year (Year 0) you will progress onto a foundation degree (FdSc). To be accepted onto a full BSc (Hons) degree you will need to achieve a 60% pass (rising to 65% for certain subjects)
