What's a foundation degree?

A foundation degree is equivalent to two thirds of an honours bachelor's degree. B&FC offers a one-year top-up course to convert your foundation degree to a full honours bachelor's degree.

What do you need to succeed?

Passion, determination and a relevant level 3 qualification. You also need to be employed in a relevant setting (or we do have placements available).

Not yet ready for a foundation degree?

If you have a few years' experience working with children and young people you will probably already be eligible to start a foundation degree - even if you haven't got the typical formal academic qualifications expected for a degree-level course.

If you haven't got the experience or qualifications to get started on a degree, we've got Access to HE courses to get you ready for a degree starting September 2021.

Again - there's nothing to pay upfront, with your course costs covered by an Advanced Learner Loan. If you go on to successfully complete a degree, you don't need to pay back the Advanced Learner Loan.
