Your foundation year will be shared with students from other degrees with a foundation year, which will give you an opportunity to discuss the subjects you study with students that have different academic perspectives. It will also allow you to meet students outside of your course and expand your network, which you might find useful when job hunting after graduation.
The foundation year is designed to equip you with skills that are necessary for undergraduate study, such as essay writing, time management, research and critical thinking. During the foundation year you’ll also take a taster module in early childhood studies, which will allow you to prepare for more rigorous study of the subject in the subsequent three years of your degree.
