The Foundation Year is designed for students who either do not meet the entry requirements for direct entry (English level, school qualifications, etc.) or would like to gain additional subject or academic skills confidence prior to the start of their degree course.
It provides an introduction to the world of economics and finance and guarantees progression onto BSc (Hons) Accounting and Finance or BSc (Hons) Business Management (subject to meeting the required criteria).
The programme can be completed in either 2 or 3 semesters depending on academic qualification and level of English. Upon successful completion you will progress seamlessly into the first year of your chosen degree at Lancaster University Leipzig.
