Foundation Engineering and Physical Sciences


The Engineering and Physical Sciences Foundation Year Programme at The University of Nottingham has been established for many years and provides an integrated route for progression to almost 90 Engineering, Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science degrees.

The programme is designed for UK and EU students whose qualifications do not meet the current admissions requirements for direct entry to undergraduate degree programmes in engineering and the physical sciences. We encourage a range of high-level applicants from a wide range of backgrounds.
