About Arts and Humanities with Foundation Year at University of Leeds

If you would like to study arts, humanities, performance, visual arts or communications at university, but don't currently meet the typical entry requirements for direct entry to a degree, then this extended degree is for you.

The foundation year provides a supportive environment where you can make the transition to university study and gain the academic knowledge and study skills you'll need to succeed.

On successful completion of the foundation year, and subject to meeting the requirements for progression, you'll continue to year one of your chosen degree course. Recent cohorts went on to study for degrees in broadcast journalism, classical civilisation, English, history, cultural and media studies, philosophy and music.

Arts and Humanities with foundation year BA is a four-year extended degree, designed for applicants who don't currently meet the typical entry requirements for direct entry to a degree and who can benefit from a programme that begins with a foundation year which provides intensive, well-structured support. The programme is part of the University's commitment to widening participation and this is reflected in the non-academic entry criteria.


Once you've successfully completed your foundation year and met the progression requirements you'll progress directly onto your chosen degree programme. The Lifelong Leaning Centre team remains on hand to help you make the transition to degree-level study.
