This one-year, full-time programme is for students who want to study an undergraduate degree programme in the UK, but require further academic knowledge, study skills and possibly English language development.

Students who successfully complete this programme and gain the award of Foundation Certificate will be allowed to progress onto any University of Cumbria undergraduate programme for which they are qualified and for which they have been offered a place.

The programme consists of six modules delivered over two semesters:

  • Academic English
  • Skills for academic study
  • General academic studies

A variety of teaching and learning methods are employed throughout the course to ensure the acquisition and development of appropriate concepts, knowledge and skills, and to cater to different learning styles.

Everything we do on this programme is aimed at integrating you into the local and academic culture and preparing you for the types of teaching, learning and assessment methods you will encounter on your degree programmes.
