Studying a Foundation year is a stepping stone to your future – it’s a route many people take in order to progress onto the first year of a degree they’d set their hearts on.

If you haven’t achieved the grades you hoped for, a Foundation year can give you the confidence and ability to study a degree in the future. Not only will you build subject specific knowledge, but you’ll also develop core study and academic skills, such as referencing and presentation, so you can hit the ground running on the first year of your degree. You don’t need to compromise on your ambitions – call us to find out how.



Why study a Foundation course?

Our Foundation Year provides a pathway to a number of degree courses and offers a number of benefits:

  • If you successfully pass your Foundation Year, you can progress directly on to a relevant honours degree course at Coventry University, Coventry University London, or any of our three CU locations (subject to meeting entry requirements).
  • Acquire a firm foundation of subject knowledge and study skills so you can start your university journey with more confidence.

The best decision I ever made

I began to look over what Applied Biosciences meant and learned a lot more about the course, and that it was a small stepping stone for me to progress onto my desired course at the main campus. I finally accepted the offer from CU Coventry, and I must say it has been the best decision that I have ever made.
