The Foundation in Arts and Education is a 1+3 year programme that results in direct progression to the undergraduate degrees offered within the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. This rigorous programme provides students with a strong academic background that will result in enhanced language, communication, critical thinking and study skills. 

Students on this programme also chose from a range of elective modules that provide the opportunity to sample topics related to their chosen undergraduate pathway such as politics, the world economy, media and education.

You will study a range of core literature and language modules in Years One and Two, with a range of optional modules to choose from in your final year.

How you are taught

You will take a combination of compulsory and optional modules, which are taught in weekly seminars and combine traditional lecture-style content delivery with small group discussions, case-studies and presentations. In your ?rst year, you can expect around 12 scheduled contact hours a week, and you will spend a significant amount of time each week in independent study preparing for classes and assignments. Your private study is supported by Moodle, our virtual learning environment, comprehensive core reading lists and the resources of the library. Staff offer individual and small group consultations and encourage you to seek their advice and feedback on your work.

Your progress is assessed each semester using a combination of individual research-based essays, portfolios, exams, oral presentations and occasionally group work.
