Gain the skills, knowledge and confidence you need to excel in a humanities degree, with our innovative Foundation Year programme.

We believe everyone should have the chance to study at degree level. If you have a passion for your subject, but for whatever reason, don’t have the grades required for the three-year programme, or you’ve had a break in your studies, our Foundation Year is a great choice. You’ll undertake an intensive and exciting year of study where you will develop your study skills and broaden your knowledge of the Humanities in a warm and encouraging environment. We offer a rigorous but supportive teaching and learning experience, that’s also very rewarding.

When you successfully finish your Foundation Year, you’ll be perfectly placed to progress to your chosen degree programme. During the year you might also learn something that takes your ambitions in a new direction. You can apply to switch to one of the many degrees offered by the Faculty of Arts and Humanities; your Academic Adviser will discuss your interests and guide you through your options during the year.
