Having been out of education for a number of years I thought my chances of going to university was non-existent, then I discovered the Foundation course in Health, Sport and Bioscience which would allow me to go on and study at degree level. The Foundation course was a great entry into the subject I love and gave me the confidence boost I needed to get back into education.
Our Foundation Year courses are perfect for you, if you...
- Need some extra education to meet the entry requirements for an undergraduate degree
- Are not sure if university life is the right path for you
- Are thinking of re-training and would like an introduction to the area
- Have been away from education for a long time, or have an incomplete education history
- Are an international student wanting a year to acclimatise to a new country and settle in.
