If you have the potential to study at degree level, but you don’t meet the entry requirements, a foundation year can bridge the gap – laying the groundwork for entry into Year 1.
The units you’ll study are designed to build your confidence and bring you up to speed for the rest of your chosen degree. You'll study the Academic Practice for the Humanities and Social Sciences unit, which helps develop your study skills for learning at the degree-level, and a range of units related to Sociology and Criminology.
Once you have successfully passed your Foundation Year you will progress directly into Year 1 of your linked honours degree.
