This programme provides a generic route of study enabling students to access the first year (Level 4) of a wide range of degree programmes within Cardiff School of Management, Cardiff School of Sport & Health Sciences and Cardiff School of Technologies. It also provides an opportunity to widen access for students whose qualifications are not appropriate for normal entry onto a degree course and who might have been out of education for a time but have relevant work experience. It will provide a foundation of core knowledge that students on successful completion can apply to their chosen future degree programme. We welcome students with a broad range of backgrounds and experiences, including:
• those who are uncertain which subject they'd like to specialise in
• those who don't have the right combination of subjects for direct entry into Year 1
• those who don't meet the expected requirements for direct entry into Year 1
• those who are returning to education after some time away
Students whose first language is not English will need to provide evidence of fluency to at least an IELTS 6.0 standard or equivalent. For full details about how to apply and English Language qualifications please see the International Foundation Management.
