Foundation courses

Foundation year courses for UK students

A foundation year is the first year of an extended degree. It’s an extra year of study at the start of an undergraduate course which will help you to develop the study skills you need to succeed on your chosen degree.

There are many reasons you may decide to study a foundation year such as not having the qualifications needed or not being predicted the required grades for your chosen degree, wanting additional time to prepare for your degree or wanting to do something new.

From day one, our foundation year students are part of the Leeds student community and you’ll be able to make the most of all the opportunities we offer.
