Subject modules

Core subjects

These form the basis of all Advanced Level Foundation pathways.

They give you the vital platform you need to acquire subject specific knowledge.

Elective subjects

Choose three subjects from a range of electives.

Like A-levels, subject modules can be combined in any way according to your strengths, interests and degree entry requirements.

We will advise you on the best subject combination for your intended degree.

You can choose combinations which are not 'typical', for example Maths, Art and Physics, but which might be the best path to your specific degree.

Programme year

Your academic syllabus is the most vital element of the year.

But there is also plenty of time for work outside class: extracurricular development, work experience opportunities, research projects and individual university counselling.
