Integrated Foundation Year
Apply Now

Want to work in science, engineering or product design?

Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) enable you to explore the fundamentals of the universe. You could uncover the science that underlies modern electronic devices; the design, testing and engineering that is required to develop an airliner; and the mathematics needed to express these amazing endeavours.

This integrated first year of study is ideal if you would like to explore these fields but don’t have traditional STEM A levels or BTECs, are returning to education or are changing careers. Many of our students lack confidence in mathematics and physics or don’t fit the stereotypical profile of an engineering student.
