The Humanities Foundation Year is an innovative programme aimed at students who need to develop their skills and knowledge in order to study on one of the prestigious degrees offered by the Faculty of Arts and Humanities.


Taught by dedicated lecturers from the Interdisciplinary Institute for the Humanities, the Foundation Year offers students the opportunity to explore a wide range of academic subjects including literature, history, philosophy, film, television and Media, American Studies, Politics and the History of Art. As well as providing students with a sound theoretical basis for their continuing studies, this approach allows students to discover previously unknown areas of study, and encourages them to develop their own scholarly interests and ideas.


The Foundation Year also places a strong emphasis on the development of essential study skills and we work closely with each individual to identify and work towards their own individual learning goals.
