University of Hull Foundation Year

Foundation year

Students on Scarborough Beach

Our foundation year aims to make the University experience accessible to students whose qualifications and experience do not make it possible to enter our first year directly.

Whether you have taken time away from education, need to upgrade your qualifications or want to enhance your language skills, the foundation year can help you prepare for study at degree level. On successful completion of the foundation year, you will be ready to progress to the first year of any Bachelors degree course in the Business School.

You will study a total of six modules over the year. These have been designed to complement each other and to address the specific learning competencies that you will need at degree level, such as independent study techniques; mathematical, communication and language skills; and information technology capabilities.

University full-time degree programmes including a Foundation Year

These programmes are appropriate for those returning to study who have relevant work/professional experience but not the required academic profile for level 4 entry. They are also suitable for level 3 learners whose subject choice has not included the necessary prerequisite but who are otherwise academically strong, or whose certified academic profile has been lower than required for level 4 entry.
