You should choose the course most appropriate to your intended study plans: your Foundation Year will be Year 0 of a 4, 5 or 6 year programme, depending on your long-term study plans.

Example: If you are planning to follow your Arts and Humanities Foundation Year with a three-year English degree, you would use the following programme when applying for your finance package: Generic Degree with Integral Foundation Year, 4 years (Year 0 is the Foundation Year in the LLC, followed by Years 1, 2 and 3 in the School of English)

Example: If you are planning to follow your Science Foundation Year with a four-year Engineering degree involving a year in industry, you would use Generic Degree With Integral Foundation Year, 5 years, (2A) or (3A), depending when your year in industry will happen (Year 0 is the Foundation Year in the LLC, followed by Years 1, 2, 3, and 4 in your chosen Engineering department).

Please note:

  • This programme is for the purposes of your student finance application only. Your University of Leeds programme details will be as follows: For your first year, you will be registered at the University for the Foundation Year programme of your choice.  At the end of the Foundation year a change of programme will be made on your University of Leeds student record and you will then be registered on the degree programme to which you are progressing.  However, for your financial support you will continue to apply each year for funding for the ‘Generic Degree with Integral Foundation Year’.

Don’t worry if you are not yet sure about whether you will be doing a Year Abroad or a Year in Industry; this can be changed later.
