What will I learn
In your foundation year, you will study:
All Humanities Foundation Year students study the Academic Practice for the Humanities and Social Sciences unit, which will help you to develop the academic and study skills required for degree-level work, and the Understanding the Contemporary World unit (with or without Uniwide Language option). You will also study Sociology and Criminology Today and Digital Technologies.
International students are placed on the Foundation Year International Route which offers additional English language study skills and tutor support through the English and Academic Practice unit. This will replace Understanding the Contemporary World unit.
Teaching is delivered via a range of methods including lectures, seminars, tutorials and, where appropriate, practical workshops, PC lab sessions, and online learning. Teaching methods depend on your chosen linked honours degree and you should expect to spend some time each week in independent study.
Successful completion of the Foundation Year guarantees automatic progression onto Year 1 of the degree you have chosen to study.Visit this course
