Foundation Degrees

A Foundation Degree is an employment-related qualification at higher education level. It is designed to equip individuals with the higher-level skills and knowledge that not only meet the needs of the employer, but also offer the opportunity to develop personally and professionally.

It is partly work-based and projects and assignments relate to individual’s role within the workplace. To achieve the qualification, students must obtain a minimum of 240 credits. The successful completion of a Foundation Degree can lead into the third year of an appropriate honours degree programme.
