What is a Foundation Year?
In essence, a Foundation Year is an additional year at the start of a university course that helps to prepare students who are not ready to pursue a full degree. It enables the student to acquire the crucial academic skills and English language level needed to successfully complete their degree whilst helping them to prepare for life in the UK. Students will have the advice and guidance of academics, tutors, and other support staff with knowledge of assisting international students during this crucial period of transition. After completing a foundation year, students have a direct and secure route onto the course of their choice for the following year at the same university.
Which pathway should students study?
Students can choose from several relevent pathways that give them the opportunity to enrol in almost all undergraduate programmes offered by UK universities. These pathways apply to the following subject areas:
- Applied Science
- Art, Design and Media
- Business and Law
- Humanities and Social Sciences
- And many more
