Course overview

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 0' 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 into 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. 

The Student Contract

Your health and wellbeing is important to us which means that we may need to adjust elements of our courses, such as the timings of our placement provision, to take into account COVID-19-related government restrictions. However, please be assured that we will do our utmost to limit any impact this has on your university experience.

Learning and teaching for all Foundation Year courses will be delivered through a blended learning approach, involving small group teaching delivered on campus and online learning, which will include virtual classroom teaching through Microsoft Teams.  Online teaching will include pre-preparation in the form of an introduction to the week’s activities, pre-recorded lectures, timetabled virtual classes using Microsoft Teams and follow-up reflective activities to test and consolidate your learning.  You will also have tutorials with your lecturers and your personal tutor which may be delivered either on campus or using Microsoft Teams.

Your course includes two modules designed to explore key issues, concepts, theories and technologies in your subject area.  In order to help you to complete these modules successfully, you will also study an online module devoted to developing your academic skills and confidence in academic study. You will complete the year by choosing a topic of your interest from your subject area and develop this in the form of a project.  These modules are designed to support your development and confidence in preparation for Level 4 study.

You will engage in a variety of learning and teaching methods and activities including, for example, active learning through student-led enquiry, directed activities to support your learning, research tasks, practical sessions and collaborative projects.  You will use the Virtual Learning Platform (Moodle) for a range of activities, including accessing lecture videos, presentations and discussion forums. We will also direct you to the online library resources and help you to make the best use of wider online resources and software.  We are keen for you to receive a student experience that provides some on-campus teaching supported by online delivery, with the opportunity for you to meet both your lecturers and fellow students regularly.
