BA Social Science Foundation Year
BA Social Science Foundation degree
Your next step to a brighter future?
Get where you want to be in life with our BA Social Science Foundation degree, specifically for learners without a traditional education background.
You may have recently left education, or you are returning to study after a break. Perhaps you missed out on the common entry requirements and are considering the BA Social Science as a gateway to a degree. This course is perfect for those who don’t have the A Level entry requirements to apply for a standard three-year degree.
This four-year programme takes the first year to lay the foundations that you’ll need to progress onto a degree topic in social sciences for the other three years. There are plenty of degrees to choose from in the areas of Law, Education, Sociology and Social Policy, Politics and International Studies, and Healthcare.
Whichever direction you choose, we'll get you started on your learning journey and support you all the way through.
Interested in starting this course in September 2023? Applications are open until 30 June 2023.
