Foundation Years

Foundation Years

Our Foundation Year courses offer an introduction to your chosen subject and are an ideal route to higher level qualifications, helping you develop the necessary skills for further study. You can apply for a Foundation Year course if you have:

  • Studied for level 3 qualifications, such as A levels or a BTEC National Diploma and Certificate qualifications, but may not have achieved the grades necessary to enter the university course of your choice.
  • Studied for a level 3 qualification but have decided to change subject area.

A Foundation Year course is made up of four six-week learning blocks (120 credits). It’s an integral part of a four year degree course.



Progression routes

If you successfully pass a Foundation Year, you will be guaranteed a place on a Honours Degree course at CU Coventry, subject to meeting specific entrance criteria. The progression routes we offer are:
