We are making some exciting changes to the Foundation Year (Year Zero) for 2021 entry. Our core modules are currently undergoing approval through the University's rigorous academic processes. As more modules are confirmed, we will include them within our course pages.
Please contact our Undergraduate Recruitment Team if you have any questions.
The 2020/2021 academic year
The modules you will take will help build your maths and statistics skills, your organisational problem-solving skills, such as creativity, leadership and teamwork, and give you a chance to work on academic practices like research, critical thinking, and university level writing. They will also develop your knowledge on general areas of business, like marketing, operations management, accounting and finance, and help you conduct research to solve real organizational problems.
You will work mainly in seminar-style classes with around 25 students for at least 12 hours per week, which will equip you with the skills, knowledge and depth of understanding that you will need to continue learning independently between sessions. You will be assessed by a mix of examinations, presentations, group-work and coursework which are intended to give you diverse preparation for the types of assessments you will be given in your first year and beyond.
Upon successful completion of the Foundation Year, you will progress to the first year of either the BSc Accounting and Finance or BSc Management. You will then follow the same course of study as direct-entry students.
