Studying a
Foundation Year

Find your Future with a Foundation Year

If you want to study at university, but you do not quite meet the requirements for a three-year honours degree, you may wish to consider the option of a foundation year. A foundation year could also be the right choice for you if you've been out of education for a while or are looking for a new challenge by embarking on a new career path.  

A foundation year can be added to a range of the courses on offer at Wrexham Glyndwr - this will mean that you do not have to delay joining university.  During the year you will study two core modules that will develop your personal, professional and academic skills and help you to get settled into university life. When you have completed the foundation year, you will be able to progress straight to degree level - if you feel this is the right path for you.  Come and find out more at our next open day.
