We may have offered you a degree with an integrated foundation year if you didn’t meet the entry requirements for Year One of the degree. During your foundation year you’ll study within our Essex Pathways department, taking modules which are relevant to your chosen degree, along with academic skills modules that enable you to succeed at undergraduate level. It is a great way to improve your confidence before starting your first year of undergraduate study in your subject department.
Essex Pathways department is based at our Colchester campus and has experienced teaching staff who are dedicated to preparing you to make the transition into your subject department in Year One. From the very first moment you arrive at Essex Pathways, you will feel part of our community. Additionally, you are guaranteed University accommodation for your foundation year if you make us your firm choice and apply by the published deadline.
Upon successful completion of your foundation year within Essex Pathways you are guaranteed progression onto the first year of the degree, with the remainder of the course taught within your department. Further information can be found on our Essex Pathways department page.
