No need for resits with new course


The University of Buckingham is offering a new alternative for students who didn’t get the A-levels needed to do a degree.

The university is opening a new foundation department, enabling students to still complete their degree within three years, and save them having to delay an academic year due to doing resits.

The one-year Pathways Foundation Programme allows students to gain the skills they need to do a degree in the schools of business, science and humanities.

Students who didn’t get the A-level grades they needed can start the programme straight away in September. This way, they can still gain an honours degree in three years.

In the second and third term of the one-year course, students can do modules in the subjects they will study at degree level.

The university also offers the chance for students to gain both an honours degree and a master’s in three years.
