Have you thought about a foundation year?

If you didn't get the grades you need or don't quite feel ready to jump straight into degree-level study, a foundation year could be the perfect choice for you.

The benefits of a foundation degree are:

  • Lower entry requirements.

  • Academic support to help you prepare for uni-level study.

  • A broad introduction to your industry before you start your specialist degree.
