Four-year degrees

Students have the opportunity to study these courses as a four-year degree including a foundation year. If you do not meet the entry requirements for the three-year bachelors degree you should consider this degree. By incorporating a foundation year, we can bring you up to speed for the demands of a full three-year degree.

If you successfully complete the foundation year, you will be guaranteed a place on the full degree and will join as a first-year student. As the foundation year is not a stand-alone qualification, but part of a programme of study for an honours degree, UK students are eligible to apply for a student loan. The government fee grant for Welsh-domiciled students will also apply.
