What is a foundation degree?
A foundation degree is the equivalent of the first two years of an honours degree. We currently offer full-time foundation degrees in education and health, consisting of academic study integrated with relevant work-based learning.
Our foundation degrees are classed as full-time due to their work-based nature, meaning you are entitled to apply for all of the relevant funding available from Student Finance England. However, your attendance at taught sessions is required for only one day (e.g. 9.30 a.m. – 3.30 p.m. or 1.00 p.m. – 7.00 p.m., times may vary depending on the venue) per week, term time only.
What could I gain?
The aim of a foundation degree is to provide students with a knowledge base that will enable them to reflect on the skills they need to be effective practitioners in an educational or health setting.
Our foundation degrees will provide students with experiences that could further their careers in services to support young people through education and mental health.
