Foundation Year Study

Students in a class

Home/EU Students

The STEM Foundation Year is an integral part of a longer degree course, rather than a stand-alone qualification. It will give you the fundamental skills needed to continue straight onto the first year of one of our BSc degrees, laying the foundations for a successful career in your chosen field.

International Students

If you are an international student and are seeking a foundation course, then you will need to apply directly to the International Study Centre.

The International Foundation Year at the International Study Centre (ISC) offers specialist preparation and support to overseas students who want to access undergraduate degrees at the University of Leicester.
