Foundation programmes

What is a foundation programme?

Our foundation programmes are pre-university level programmes designed to enhance the study and learning skills essential for undergraduate study.

We run four distinct courses divided by subject. Successful completion of your chosen foundation programme will allow you to progress directly onto your selected undergraduate degree.

What will I learn?

You will get the chance to study a variety of subject areas that the Faculty has to offer. This will not only give you an idea of what subject you may like to progress on to, but also to develop the valuable learning skills necessary for pursue a degree.
