University of Westminster

Course Introduction

Our degree courses with Foundation year offer the opportunity to prepare you for advanced study before you progress onto a full honours degree at the University of Westminster. Whether you do not feel ready for degree-level study, don’t have the right qualifications, want to change your subject specialism or return to study after an absence from education, we aim to encourage a broad range of students to undertake our Foundation year in order to progress onto their full honours degree with us.

The Foundation year is designed to give you the opportunity to explore new ideas, opening up new perspectives on the key debates within your chosen field. Core modules accelerate your academic and professional development , bringing together like-minded students to think about the ‘big ideas’ within your discipline. You will also take modules from areas closely related to your chosen field, giving you the chance to develop a cross-disciplinary perspective on your course.

On successful completion of the Foundation year, you will be able to move on to study for the English Language and Linguistics BA Honours degree which, over a further three years study, allows you to study the historical and cultural aspects of the English language, while improving your range of productive skills and awareness of English as a linguistic system and literary medium. We recognise that the study of English is deepened and extended by a thorough knowledge of the structure, meaning and sound systems of language in general. This course provides a rare opportunity to study in depth both a formal approach to language and the way in which language is used.
