Foundation Degree in Computing

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016
    • Thread Starter

    I am currently about to start studying a foundation degree at my local college. The reason I am doing a foundation degree instead of a full degree is due to home commitments, since my parent is suffering from a disability and I want to stay at home while I study. The cost of studying this degree is cheaper, too, and I am entitled to the same level of student finance as somebody studying an undergraduate degree. I am also aiming to progress onto the third year of the equivalent undergraduate degree.

    Anyhow, I have couple of questions. Firstly, what should I expect in terms of class size? Will there be many people my age studying this course, or will it mostly be older people? Also, can anybody give me information on how work-based learning works?
