FOUNDATION YEAR AT WINCHESTER Embrace the next exciting step on your journey as we look to the future together. We would love you to join our friendly community where equality, diversity and inclusivity are embraced, and academic rigour is matched with outstanding support to help you be the best you can be. As the University for Sustainability and Social Justice, making a difference in the world is key to what we do here at Winchester. We know the future of our world matters to you too. We hope to foster lifelong individual and collective transformative action, from combatting the global climate crisis to improving social mobility and opportunity. Study at a university where futures matter. Study at a university where you matter. WHAT IS A FOUNDATION YEAR?

A Foundation Year is an extra year of study at the start of your course (Year 0) which leads onto a full degree programme (Years 1, 2 and 3). In Year 0, you study a set of modules from across your Faculty which are designed to develop your academic and practical skills. This broader focus in your first year introduces you to studying at university level and provides you with a better understanding of your own degree pathway and related disciplines. You will experience a variety of teaching methods including lectures, discussion-based seminars and independent study. You will also receive support to boost your academic skills to prepare you for onward study at Winchester. All students studying a Foundation Year benefit from the ‘Succeeding at University’ module which helps build your self-awareness and confidence in your academic ability. You will identify your own preferred learning style, and how to use this to your advantage, and learn how to search, identify and understand suitable academic resources. You will develop your academic writing and strategies for approaching assessments. There are opportunities to engage in discussions and debate, as well as giving/receiving constructive feedback. In Years 1-3, you specialise in your chosen subject area and can begin to choose optional modules to further tailor the course to your interests. Please visit the individual course pages on our website for the full list of core and optional modules. WHY STUDY A FOUNDATION YEAR?

A Foundation Year at Winchester may be the right choice for you if you: • Are returning to education after a break in your studies • Have not quite achieved the entry qualifications required for your chosen undergraduate course 3

• Are wanting more support during the transition to university study • Are not quite sure which subject you wish to pursue. It is the perfect way to boost your academic skills, build your confidence and develop your wider subject knowledge at the start of your university experience, so you can reach your full potential and succeed at Winchester. WHAT HAPPENS AFTER YEAR 0?

Successful completion of your first year, Year 0, automatically guarantees you a place on the relevant linked course – so you progress onto the next level, Year 1. Many of our Foundation Year courses also offer you the option to change course after Year 0 if you wish; for example, moving from completing Year 0 on the Creative Writing (with Foundation Year) course to starting Year 1 on the Media and Communication course. When you start Year 1, some students will have also completed a Foundation Year and some students may be starting directly at this level. Many students who have already completed a year at Winchester find this advantageous as you will be familiar with the University learning environment. WHICH COURSES HAVE A FOUNDATION YEAR?

We have around 50 courses with a Foundation Year to choose from – please see pages 5-14 or visit winchester.ac.uk/foundation for more information. INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

Our International Foundation Programme (IFP) is ideal if you are an international student who has not met the English entry requirements and/or A Level equivalencies for your chosen undergraduate course. Please see page 16 for more information.
