Leeds Trinity's four-year degree programmes allow you to commence your studies with an initial foundation year. This initial one-year period of study allows you 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.
If you have the capacity to undertake degree-level study, but may not have the required entry requirements to do so, this offers you an alternative way in to university. It also offers a development opportunity to you if you wish to build your skills and confidence by undertaking four - rather than three - years of university study.
Upon successful completion of the foundation year, you will be able to progress to Year 1 of this linked honours degree:
BSc (Hons) Computer Science with Foundation Year in Computing I190
Modules (Year 0)
- Academic Skills and Studying with Confidence
- Principles of Web Development
How to apply
Apply via UCAS
The 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.
Benefits of 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.
