Our Foundation Years in Computing, Engineering and the Built Environment allow you to undertake an additional year of study to build stronger creative footings and ensure successful progression to your chosen degree. During the year you will work in a lively and energetic environment, and have the freedom to expand your knowledge of practical skills, exploration and development. You will also gain a broad critical understanding of academic writing and emerging theoretical principles.
