What will I learn?

The BA (Hons) programmes with Foundation Year are open to a wide range of students who do not yet have the qualifications to apply for an undergraduate degree programme in Humanities and Social Sciences. You may be a mature student who would like to work towards a degree; or you may have recently left further education without the qualifications required to access the degree programme of your choice. The Foundation Year offers you the opportunity to grow in confidence in academic study through the development of key skills and the exploration of diverse themes and cutting-edge developments in a large array of subject areas in Humanities and Social Sciences. This route offers you a four year (full-time) degree course, which will include opportunities for you to engage with the subject area of your choice, to select from a range of subjects to broaden your knowledge and understanding, and will provide structured study skills support as you build your confidence to study at degree level. Working with tutors from across Humanities and Social Sciences, you will have the opportunity to explore a variety of academic disciplines, encountering a wide range of subjects and ideas. You will engage in a range of teaching and learning activities, including lectures, seminars, group work, workshops and online learning. Passing your first year guarantees progression onto any of our undergraduate degrees offered with an integrated Foundation Year.
