Course Content​

Foundation year (Year 0):​
This programme can incorporate a foundation year (year 0) for those students who aspire to enrol onto the first year of a social science based honours degree programme or HND within Cardiff Metropolitan University, who have not achieved the standard entry requirements, or who have not studied subjects that provide the necessary background within the social science disciplines required to ​enter the first year of the chosen honours degree programme.

Students wishing to undertake the foundation year will apply for the degree programme they intend to progress to, using the relevant UCAS code listed on this course page (under Key Facts) and apply for entry point 0 on the UCAS website. As such, students following the foundation route will take an extra year to complete their honours degree.
