Improve prospects

Foundation degrees help learners to improve their career prospects by equipping them with the academic knowledge and sector specific skills required to progress in the workplace. Students graduate with a very specialised set of skills designed to meet the specific needs of employers.

As well as a qualification in its own right, a Foundation degree also offers a route to study an Honours degree at university.

Foundation degrees are designed and delivered through partnerships between employers, universities and further education colleges and are available in a wide range of subjects.
