What to Study in Foundation Year?
Compare to A Level, the Foundation Year program is a shorter (one year) course, which is more targeted and focused. Instead of studying three or four areas, it allows students to focus on one or two subjects enabling a deeper understanding of these areas of study.
Foundation Year program consists of core academic modules and a choice of different subject routes (streams), each carefully designed to focus on the academic areas most useful to your future study intentions. These routes lead directly to a range of specific degree courses at university. There are Law foundation program prepares you for law degrees, Business foundation program for business degrees, Science foundation program for science degrees and etc. You will only focus on your chosen degree and do not need to study subjects which are unrelated to it.

JACK StudyAbroad Comments: This law foundation curriculum is not easy by any means but you don’t have to study unrelated subjects (e.g. math or science) – it’s perfect if you are determined to study LLB, International Relations or Politics.
