Foundation Years

Foundation years are an open gateway to new possibilities. They teach you the specialist skills and knowledge necessary to access certain degree courses.

Our foundation years are designed for students who don't currently hold the qualifications required for a certain course, and for international students who need help preparing to study in Bradford.

You will complete the year feeling ready to start a degree, having met new friends and integrated into university life at Bradford.

Students who successfully achieve the required level on a foundation year can then progress to a relevant degree course. You'll be able to access any of our degrees by successfully completing the foundation that matches your study interests.

I was offered a place on the Foundation Year, which was a good taster of what university life would be like. It's a fantastic entry route. Successful completion guaranteed me a place on the BSc (Hons) Psychology course. Leanne Hunt, Foundation Year
