The extended programme is designed for students whose qualifications do not meet the standard entry requirements for BA Hons programmes. It is the first year of a four-year extended degree programme. During this additional first year you will be introduced to a variety of business-related subjects and learning skills to enable you to take advantage of further study.
Students who successfully complete the core and option courses can transfer to other BA Hons programmes within the university at the end of the foundation year. This must be agreed with your tutor and the relevant admissions tutor. Students follow one of three pathways. This determines the type of programme they may study in subsequent years.
Business pathway - students can progress on to BA Hons Business Administration, BA Hons Project Management, BA Hons Business Technology Management, BA Hons Business Administration with Marketing or BA Hons Business Administration with Accounting and Finance.
Architecture pathway - students can progress on to BA Hons Architecture, BA Hons Graphic and Digital Design, BA Hons 3D Digital Design and Animation or BA Hons Landscape Architecture.
Humanities pathway - students can progress on to any of a wide range of degree programmes in English, drama, philosophy, history, politics, language, law, sociology, criminology, or cultural studies subjects.
The aims of the programme are:
EU/Home: £9,000 International: £10,350

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
Applicants should have:
160-180 UCAS points
PLUS at least three GCSEs at grade C or above (including English and mathematics) or equivalent qualifications.
No work experience is required.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS we offer you the chance to receive up to £10,000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
