Modules

We provide a highly flexible and personalised approach to studying for a Foundation degree. We teach the course on-campus in blocks with the option of some off-campus learning. This means that you can attend the workshops either on-site or online via live stream. The below percentages are an average split for students on this course.

Course delivery

Following the pandemic, we have found that some courses benefit from a blended learning and teaching approach. Therefore, the majority of your teaching will be face-to-face on campus, with some online teaching where we have learnt it works best.
