The University of Southampton

Foundation Years

We offer Foundation Years for students who are not eligible for direct entry into our undergraduate degrees.

A foundation year may be the option for you if you do not meet the entry requirements for your course of choice, or if you have qualifications for subjects that differ to the subjects needed. Our four different foundation years can each give you a route into several different subjects.
