About the Foundation Year
The Foundation Year is ideal if you have the ability to study for a degree but don’t have the qualifications to enter directly onto the Computer Science honours degree programme. Once you pass the Foundation Year you will progress directly onto the first year of the honours degree. If you are a full-time UK student, you will qualify for student financial support for the full duration of your course (subject to eligibility criteria).
