Description

The foundation year is carefully designed to provide a supportive environment in which you can build your confidence, developing the academic, technical skills and subject knowledge to continue on the degree of your choice.

Throughout the year you will study a range of subjects that underpin subsequent study in Year 1 of your degree and beyond. The broad scope of subjects is intended to allow study in a range of subject areas and, in some instances, allow flexibility of choice of intended degree route. Subjects start at an elementary level, and there is a strong emphasis on the development of practical investigational and study skills.
