Why study this course?
Newman University offers an innovative foundation year to complement our undergraduate degrees. Our Foundation Year is the first year of an integral four-year degree, with completion of the Foundation Year leading in to the first year of the 3 year degree in Studies in Primary Education BA (Hons). The foundation year enables those unable to access the traditional UCAS tariff requirements for a three year degree, an alternative route into beginning and ultimately gaining an honours degree.
You apply via UCAS for the Studies in Primary Education (with Foundation Year) course and after successfully completing the first year you will progress onto the final three years of the degree. At this point there may be the opportunity to transfer onto a related degree at Newman University. Such a transfer is subject to the agreement of the course tutor and meeting any additional entry requirements.
Please note that this page and the corresponding UCAS search page, show the correct course code 9X74.
The current prospectus 2020 shows an incorrect code.
