The extra year gives those applicants who do not have the right qualifications the opportunity to progress onto one of our computing degrees. The foundation year is delivered at the University by the same staff who teach on the later stages of the degree courses.
Applicants can choose to study either BSc (Hons) Computing with Foundation Year or BSc (Hons) Computer Systems and Networks with Foundation Year. After successful completion of the foundation year part of these programmes, you can progress onto the first year of any of our degree programmes, including our two year, fast-track degrees (subject to a successful interview). Pass mark for progression is 50%.
