Overview

A foundation year at Leeds Beckett is an ideal first step into higher education and will fully prepare you for undergraduate study. We are offering our BA (Hons) Teaching & Education degree with an integrated foundation year. If you don't have the required UCAS points to be able to secure a place on the full degree programme, this foundation year will prepare you for academic life at our university.

During the foundation year, you will study four education-related modules. These will introduce you to the subjects included on each of our four routes, from childhood studies and early years with enterprise to race and education.

An additional module will develop the academic and study skills needed to successfully transition from school or the workplace to higher education and on to your full degree programme. You will also learn how to access the extensive resources and support services available here at Leeds Beckett, whether you need a hand locating specialist materials in the Library, or you need advice about personal issues.

During your second, third and fourth years you will study an average of six modules each year. Visit each of the course pages below for details of the modules offered as part of your chosen course.

BA (Hons) Teaching & Education

BA (Hons) Early Years with Enterprise

BA (Hons) Innovation & Skills for Social Change

BA (Hons) Childhood Studies

We understand that full-time study does not suit everyone. That’s why we offer courses which give you the opportunity to decide where, when and how you can get involved in learning. Studying a distance learning course offers the convenience and flexibility to make education work for you. Whether you’d like to fit your studies around childcare, develop your skills while working or, quite simply, want to learn from the comfort of your own home, we can help you gain a qualification at a time and pace that suits your lifestyle.

Like our students on campus, you will have the same excellent teaching and learning resources, however you’ll find these online instead of in a lecture theatre. Not only are all the modules taught online, but you will also have access to an online community and more than 140,000 books and journals in our online library.
