Students who do not meet standard prerequisites for a degree program may satisfy their deficiencies by enrolling in a foundation year. A foundation year includes remedial coursework that allows students to advance to their degree’s core courses.

What is a foundation year in education? A foundation year in education is an introductory course of study intended to prepare students for the more rigorous curriculum of a teaching program. Some of the topics that may be included are data analysis, English, composition and current affairs. Mastering these subjects allows students to advance to the normal coursework required to obtain a degree in education, where courses will focus more on the specifics of teaching and educational theory.

A foundation year in education offers students the benefit of a well-rounded education and a solid basis for the rest of their career. It also can provide opportunities for more interdisciplinary study prior to enrollment in a degree’s core coursework.

The cost of a foundation year in education will differ from school to school. If you would like an accurately calculated summary of expenses, you should reach out to the admissions office at the university you would like to attend.

Enrollment in a foundation year in education can open a range of career opportunities. Once it has been completed, students can complete their degree and pursue positions teaching elementary and secondary students. Other options include working as a teacher’s aide, curriculum developer, substitute teacher or educational assistant. There are plenty of job opportunities in the educational field and beyond for students to consider after completion of their foundation year in education.

If you are interested in enrolling in a foundation year in education, you may be able to do so through either on-campus or online study options. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
