Birmingham Foundation Academy pathways

student reading in library

The Birmingham Foundation Academy now offers both an undergraduate and postgraduate entry route. 

We offer three foundation undergraduate pathways, allowing you to complete a foundation year before entering into a full time undergraduate degree in a broad range of subjects.

We now offer nine 'Masters Degree with Integrated Pre-Masters', enabling you to complete a pre-masters year before beginning a one year masters programme in the field of Music, Biosciences and Economics. These are suitable for students who do not meet the entry requirements for these fields of study.

Study for both the foundation and pre-masters pathways will be a mix of self-study and lectures and seminars with other University of Birmingham students.This will give you the opportunity to share your ideas and increase your knowledge in different areas of study and form academic networks outside your main discipline.
