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:

  • To ensure that you have the confidence and competence to operate in an academic environment, through extended competence with information technology and abilities to communicate ideas to others
  • To develop your ability to analyse and conduct research into a variety of subject matters seeking insights and drawing supportable conclusions
  • To develop knowledge in a given subject area, depending upon pathway choice, involving detail and breadth of study coupled with the ability to build and test hypotheses.

English Language Requirements

IELTS band : 6

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.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.

To study at this university, you have to speak English. We advise you to

take an IELTS test.
