How does it work?

Home / Help and advice / Integrated Foundation Year Programme / How does it work?

The Foundation Year will equip you with the essential study skills and subject specific knowledge to prepare you for a degree course. Once you have successfully completed the Foundation Year you will move directly onto your chosen degree. There is also some flexibility in that you may be able to choose another degree if you think your skills and ambitions would be better suited to another course.

And remember, if you are a mature student you won’t be alone here at Sunderland. We have a high proportion of students who have joined our University with work and life experience which will be taken into consideration when you apply so don’t worry if you don’t have formal qualifications.
