We have been delivering undergraduate degrees in partnership with UK universities for over ten years.
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 relating to education, health and children's services consisting of academic study integrated with relevant work-based learning. These foundation degrees are accredited by the University of Worcester.
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. 1.00 p.m. – 8.00 p.m.) 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.
What is a Bachelor's Degree?
A bachelor’s degree is a three or four year course you can take in undergraduate higher education – also known as a ‘first degree’ or ‘undergraduate degree’. Most courses are either a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BSc). The Learning Institute offer top-up degrees for students who have completed a foundation degree.
What is a Master's Degree?
Postgraduate study is higher education study for graduates who have already completed an undergraduate course.
Courses at taught masters level:
- lead to qualifications such as Master of Science, Master of Arts or Master of Letters
- are generally 12 months long in the UK and contain 180 CATS credits
- can be specialist and career-related (for example the Master of Business Studies or Masters in Business Administration)
