What is Foundation Studies?

Our range of Foundation Studies courses enables entry on to a wide selection of Loughborough University degree courses for students that have not studied the correct subjects, or not quite achieved the qualifications required, perhaps due to illness, family issues or other commitments. Foundation studies is a one year programme that allows you to progress onto the first year of your chosen degree course, provided the relevant progression criteria are met. We also run the International Foundation Programme and foundation course options for elite athletes.
