Foundation Degrees

Our Foundation Degrees are designed to cater to students who are looking to strengthen their academic skills, gain specialist knowledge, and prepare for success in their future studies and careers.

Benefits of Foundation Degrees

Foundation degrees have different times frames to completion based on the course you decide to study. These courses are equivalent to the first year of university study. They are tailored for students who need additional support to bridge the gap between secondary education or work experience and university-level studies. Whether you’re returning to education after a break, changing your career path, or you need further qualifications to pursue your academic and career goals, our Foundation Degrees provide a flexible and focused route to achieving your ambitions.

When choosing a degree you should consider:

Your Interests

Career Goals
