A foundation year could be part of a degree course in some universities. It lasts a year and is designed to give students a foundation that they can lean on when they are pursuing a more advanced degree.

After completing a college degree, a student may wish to pursue a graduate degree. The first level of such study is called a master. Students can earn this title after completing approximately two years of study when taking a full load of credits.

Our Foundation Year prepares you for degree-level study at WBS and gives students the opportunity to build their knowledge about business, improve some key skills we have found to be important to success during the undergraduate degree, and spend a year getting used to the university environment.

We provide a diverse programme of events and activities, such as off-campus visits to businesses, guest lectures, careers workshops, and service projects, that build your confidence and can be experiences you draw from when you move on to degree level study.

We realise that there are bright, motivated students who are capable of succeeding in our courses who may not get the chance to because of circumstances beyond their control. It is well-known that students from disadvantaged backgrounds do not gain access to higher education at the same rate as other students – not because they cannot succeed, but because of barriers that make it difficult to prove they can. We believe strongly in facilitating access to these students.... [-]

A great journey always begins with a first step.

Italy: synonym of wonder, especially for the new generations who live abroad and who wish to enter into contact with the culture and the educational system that the Beautiful Country is able to offer. The scenario assumed by RUFA to contact students attracted by Made in Italy, starts from this assumption not intended only as a sign of distinction and style, but also as a qualitative approach to life.

It is precisely in this context the foundation year fits in: a supplementary course of 60 credits, lasting one year, the objective of which is to initiate the student in cultural, design, historical and artistic subjects which they will encounter, in yet a deeper way, in the years to come. Thanks to this educational path, foreign students with 11 years of school attendance will be able to integrate the minimum prerequisite of the 12 required, before accessing the university system, supplementing their knowledge of basic subjects for the development of the required artistic, audiovisual, multimedia and design knowledge. Participants will also be able to find out about RUFA training methods, interacting with teachers, by integrating practical and theoretical methods, exploring the concepts of research and artistic production and best practices related to design....
