About Chemical Engineering with a foundation year at Swansea University

Chemical Engineering at Swansea University

Key features

The Engineering integrated Foundation Year programme is a common one which leads on to any of our branches of engineering. It is not a stand-alone qualification, but is the first year of a 4-year BEng degree.

Why study an Engineering Integrated Foundation Year at Swansea University?

As all Engineering Foundation Year students study all the same modules, there is a good rapport amongst students which creates a friendly and supportive study atmosphere.

The majority of our Engineering Foundation Year students work very hard and pass all modules with good marks, which means that they are in the perfect position of being able to choose one of our engineering degree schemes.

Students typically progress to a BEng degree, but it is also possible to move up to the MEng degree after the end of level 2 (this is the end of the third year for foundation year students as their first year is known as level 0) provided you have around a 60% average.

Completing a MEng degree from the foundation year will take 5 years. Numerous foundation year students have progressed right through to MEng level and many have graduated with our top qualification, a 1st class honours degree.

Course description

The Engineering Integrated Foundation course is just the same as any other year of engineering. As a student on the course, you will be allocated an academic mentor and will have regular tutorials throughout the year alongside the lectures, laboratory and seminar classes.

Entry requirements

We accept a wide range of qualifications and backgrounds for the Engineering Foundation Year. Each application is considered on a case-by case basis, depending on the educational background and work experience of the applicant.

For A level or IB students, our standard offer is BBB - BCC at A level, or 26 at IB.

Students studying for BTEC or other vocational qualifications, who might not have the right pre-requisite Mathematical background for Year 1 entry, may also apply for this scheme. BTEC entry requirements for the Foundation Year are DDD, with D in all Mathematics modules.

All applicants are also expected to hold minimum B grades at GCSE (or equivalent) in Mathematics and all sciences, including at least two A grades.

Mature students with relevant work experience, or access courses with a good mathematical and science content, are also considered for this scheme; an interview may be required.

International applicants are welcomed to this scheme with a variety of qualifications which are not of the right standard to allow standard level 1 entry. Please see this link for more information www.swansea.ac.uk/international/students/apply

English Language Support for International Students

If you are considering joining the foundation programme from outside of the UK, we will require IELTS 6.0 or equivalent in order to join our foundation scheme. If your English is not at the required level for entry directly into Engineering, we would recommend that you consider studying English Language for up to a year with our English Language Training Service (ELTS) department who offers an excellent range of courses. Visit www.swansea.ac.uk/elts for more information.
