Health & Social Care Foundation Year

Our Foundation Year courses offer an introduction to your chosen subject and are an ideal route to degree level qualifications, helping you develop the necessary skills for further study.

Essential academic skills are embedded into all the work to ensure you can excel in future learning.

The foundation course is also useful if you have the academic ability to succeed at degree-level study, but do not have the appropriate subject background knowledge. Successful completion of all modules in this course means you could progress onto year one of a relevant degree course, subject to meeting the entry requirements.
