Program description

Youth Studies (Including Foundation Year) BSc (Hons) (Full-time)

Our Youth Studies (including foundation year) BSc degree will give you the opportunity to enter an undergraduate degree if you don’t have the necessary entry requirements to enter the traditional three-year course. After completing the foundation year, you’ll study the same course content as students from our Youth Studies BSc and graduate with the same title and award as those who studied the three-year course.

During this four-year degree you’ll gain a range of practical and academic skills that will allow you to enter a career in youth social work.

Throughout the four-year degree you’ll receive both academic and pastoral support from an assigned academic mentor and personal tutor. There will also be opportunities to receive extra support through our academic and careers workshops, where you’ll get to work on skills such as essay writing and interview techniques.

Your foundation year will be shared with students from other courses with a foundation year. This will be a perfect opportunity to study with people who have different academic interests and work with them to improve your academic skills.

During the foundation year you’ll take a module that relates to youth studies. This will help you prepare for the subsequent undergraduate years of your degree. This module will introduce you to national policy on youth, community development in London and how it impacts on the youth of the city.

Admission requirements

In addition to the University's standard requirements, you should have:

  • at least one A level (or a minimum of 32 UCAS points from an equivalent Level 3 qualification, eg BTEC Subsidiary/National/BTEC Extended Diploma)
  • English Language GCSE at grade C (grade 4) or above (or equivalent)

If you are a mature student with significant work experience, you are invited to apply for this course on the basis of the knowledge and skills you have developed through your work.
