WHAT IS A FOUNDATION ENTRY DEGREE?

Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to enter directly on to their chosen Honours degree programme. An additional preliminary year of study will give you the knowledge, skills and confidence to succeed at Honours degree level.

It also provides an ideal solution if you perhaps chose the wrong A Level subjects, instead of repeating a year at school or college, giving you the university experience from the outset. Many of our Foundation Entry degrees offer some flexibility within the subject area at the end of the first year, giving you more time to decide on your specific pathway.

These integrated Foundation Entry Degrees are different to Foundation Degrees, which are usually offered over 2 years by colleges, and require a further top-up to gain an Honours degree classification.
