December 13 2012

Students looking to gain a degree can bring their skills up to standard courtesy of a new set of courses.

Glyndwr University is launching four-year degree courses from September 2013. The new degrees include a foundation year to enable students to bring their skills up to speed before they embark on a traditional three-year course. 

You can add a foundation year to 14 degree courses at the university. There are three pathways for students taking this route: engineering, art and design and creative media and technology

Professor Helen James, director of the School for Undergraduate Studies, said: “We are delighted to launch this new set of degree courses. We are committed to widening access to higher education to as many students as possible who have the potential to achieve and these contribute towards that mission.”

Students concerned about meeting the entry requirements for three-year bachelor degrees can apply for the four-year courses. On passing the foundation year they will be guaranteed acceptance on to the three-year degree programme.
