Foundation Year

Leeds Trinity University > Foundation Year


​Leeds Trinity University's Foundation Year is designed for students who have the capacity to undertake degree-level study, but may not have the required entry requirements to do so. They offer you an alternative way in to university, allowing you to begin your studies with an initial full-time foundation year.

This one-year period of study aims to develop your academic skills and confidence through undertaking four 30-credit 'level zero' modules. These modules are designed to introduce you to a number of key concepts, debates and skills that will inform your second, third and fourth years of study.

Our Foundation Year is for you if:

  • you do not have the right qualifications for a full degree;

  • you feel you are not yet ready for degree-level study;

  • you are returning to study and feel you need some help to get up to speed with the demands of learning before embarking on a degree.

Why study a Foundation Year?

  • Undertaking a four-year pathway allows you to undertake a Foundation Year where you will gain key academic skills before entering full undergraduate study.

  • Opting for a Foundation Year will offer you the opportunity to build your self-confidence before progressing to mainstream undergraduate study.

  • Studying a Foundation Year as part of a four-year undergraduate degree offers you the opportunity to build your academic skills over a longer period of time.
