    Undergraduate Study

    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 Foundation Year Programme could be for you.

    In the foundation year (Year 0) you choose one entry route, 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 Foundation Year Programme is an excellent stepping-stone to undergraduate study for students who might otherwise miss out on higher education.”

    Honours Degrees (+ Foundation Year)

    If you achieve a 40% pass in your Foundation Year, you will progress onto the BSc (Hons) degree for your current route. To transfer onto a different BSc (Hons) degree you will need to achieve a 60% pass and meet any route-specific progression requirements.
