Your foundation year with us

Your Foundation Year will be studied at The College, Swansea University, a state-of-the-art, beachfront building located alongside the School of Management on Bay Campus. Upon successful completion of this initial year, you will move to the School of Management building to join our direct entry students in Year 1.

The Foundation Year is not a stand-alone qualification but is your first year of four at the University.

Our aim is to ensure you obtain the best possible results upon completion of your undergraduate degree.”
