Foundation years

A foundation year or a pre-master's programme will help you get onto your chosen undergraduate or postgraduate degree course if you're not eligible for direct entry.

A foundation course may be the option for you if you do not have the traditional entry qualifications for your degree. They provide a route into several different subjects at our UK campus and the University of Southampton Malaysia.
