Our Study Programmes
At Kingston Maurward our Higher Education study programmes range from the Access to Higher Education course, to Foundation Degrees and Top-up Degrees in specialist subjects.
Access to Higher Education (Science)
This course acts as an entry onto the first year of a Foundation Degree or Honours Degree course. This is a one year, two days per week course, nationally validated through Ascentis Awards. The education programme is designed for students aged 19+ to gain entry to Higher Education across a range of subjects.
Foundation Degrees (FDA/FdSc)
Delivered in partnership with degree-awarding bodies, sector skills councils and employers – these are two-year qualifications designed to provide more vocational practical study at degree level. They provide a great way of studying for a range of learners, particularly those who prefer to study locally, or non-traditional Higher Education entrants such as mature learners.
Top-Up Degrees (BSc Hons)
Students who successfully complete their Foundation Degree may decide to apply for a ‘top-up’ further year at their partner university or another to study for an Honours Degree. This can be completed here at Kingston Maurward in some subjects.
