Fast-track into your degree
Our degrees with foundation years are available in a range of subject areas at our High Wycombe campus. You can start your foundation year in January and finish in July. This route allows you to accelerate your journey into higher education, whilst developing your confidence in degree-level learning.
Foundation year acts as an additional year to your degree, and during this time you will be able to develop new skills and knowledge in your area, home in on your interest and talents, and get an introduction to your chosen course.
Once you pass your foundation year, you are guaranteed a place onto your chosen course and will enter the first year of the degree programme, starting September.
