About Social Science at School of Sociology and Social Policy, University of Leeds

This foundation programme is designed for students who don't have the standard entry requirements. If you feel you missed out on education and want the opportunity to realise your potential, this course will give you a firm grounding in the social sciences and prepare you to progress onto one of our social science degree courses.

In total, the length of the course will be four years - the first year will be a foundation year, followed by three years studying for an undergraduate degree in the social sciences.

Your first year acts as a 'Level 0' foundation year, equipping you with the skills to study social sciences at undergraduate level and introducing you to key concepts and ideas in sociology, politics, crime, education and law.

You'll need to pass the foundation year to progress onto some of our most popular three-year undergraduate degree courses, including BA Childhood Studies, BA Politics, LLB Law, BA Criminal Justice and Criminology, BA Sociology and Social Policy, BA Social Policy and Crime, BA Social Work and many others.

In a supportive and friendly environment, you'll be able to explore society and social change while learning how to study and developing important skills to prepare for an undergraduate degree.

The BA Social Science programme is one of a number of courses the University offers for students returning to education without standard entry requirements. Alternative courses are provided by the Lifelong Learning Centre, including the part-time BA Interdisciplinary Studies with Preparation for Higher Education, which can lead to a degree in the social sciences.
