Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Your foundation year will be shared with students from other disciplines, so you’ll get to learn alongside individuals with different academic interests and strengths. You’ll find that the foundation year is a unique opportunity to improve your academic skills including critical thinking, essay writing and research in the context of  social sciences.

The foundation year will also provide a broad base for the study of international relations. You’ll explore topics such as media, crime, race, society and identity, all of which affect the realm of national and international politics. 

These modules are also great in helping you develop vital academic skills, critically analyse material, and improve your writing and research abilities. During this year, you’ll also study a module more related to international relations, which will allow you to get a better understanding of the subjects and themes you’ll study in the subsequent three years.
