Foundation year courses

The Foundation Year is for you if your:

  • academic grades prevent you applying directly for a degree
  • personal background means you might not consider the University of Nottingham. 

The Foundation Year:

  • builds skills, knowledge and confidence
  • guarantees a place on your chosen degree (on successful completion).
