Foundation Year - when the GCSE exam is not passed.

Foundation Year is the Zero Year

Do you want to study but you do not meet the conditions? The baccalaureate was not really important, but would it be good to study in the UK? Do you think the level of the English language is too weak to study abroad? Or maybe you want to change the field of study, but you do not have enough knowledge? If you have an affirmative answer to at least one question, Foundation Year is for you 🙂

What is Foundation Year?

All UK universities create a Zero Year for people who are determined to study what they want, even though they do not meet the standard requirements to enter college. Foundation Year is a one-year study at the university you want to go to or in another school. This is the time to fill in the missing knowledge at the level of the language or specialisation and increase the chances of starting your dream undergraduate course.

What activities are in Year Zero?

First of all, your English will be at the university level as well as the remaining specialist knowledge that allows you to start your studies.

Classes that typically run in Year Zero include:
- university English - here you focus on writing, reading, listening and speaking in practice,
- effective study - you get to know the English teaching system. Working with a computer, research methodology, using and understanding data, teamwork, problem solving as well as obtaining information and avoiding data duplication. And most of all, you will be a specialist in time management.

The remaining subjects differ depending on the field of study.

Here are examples of selected year zero activities.

How much time is spent at university?

The goal of the Foundation Year is to fill in the missing knowledge
hence the number of classes is slightly higher than in the regular year of study. Usually this time is between 16 and 20 hours a week. The most important thing is class attendance, which the university pays special attention to. It is worth remembering about this when planning your private life and free time.

Foundation Year Zero Benefits

The Zero Year is the best time to improve your high school diploma, build your own presentation, which is essential when choosing art courses, and most of all for those who are not sure of their level of English.

The main benefits are:
- each person is assigned to one teacher and this guarantees
individual support
- learning takes place in groups of up to 15 people
- classes are conducted by the same lecturers as they teach at the university
- practical knowledge of the British education system, which is completely different from our Polish one
- integration with the student community through participation in the life of the university
- real contact with British culture

Passing the year zero exam is a guarantee of starting your dream studies in
Great Britain. Average required is 50 to 70% of all subjects.
For people from Poland studying in the Polish education system it is usually not a problem at all.

How Much is a Foundation Year Zero?

The cost of a Year Zero is usually between ÂŁ 9,000 and as much as ÂŁ 16,000 at high-end colleges. However, for those who choose the Year Zero, we have good news, because it is fully covered by the student loan
(people from the UK with pre settled or settled status).
The total duration of study is four years, for which consists of one zero year and three years of undergraduate studies.
Following this path, you do not have to worry about the financial resources to cover the tuition fees.
Before you decide which direction and which university you want to go to -
find out from us from Motivation Academy whether you are really entitled to a student loan, because not all universities use such solutions.
