A foundation year gives students an opportunity to learn about a degree program in which they’re interested, but not yet ready or qualified to enter. They may be seeking credits for eligibility or simply exploring a program to decide if they want to pursue it. They may receive some sort of accreditation for completing foundation year studies.

What is a foundation year in architecture studies? A foundation year in architecture can prepare students for further coursework in architectural studies, typically an undergraduate degree.

Sometimes architecture is a sub-category of foundation studies in the larger area of art and design. In this case, students can select from several groups of courses relevant to architectural studies, but can also take more generalized courses in art and design. A foundation year in architecture can also offer classes in general studies, enabling students to fulfill a range of eligibility requirements.

A foundation year in architecture is typically designed to prepare students for further coursework such as an undergraduate degree. It can also introduce students to the fascinating world of creative expression.
