    I can show you both if you really want, both have around 16 hours of lectures a week, and then more for workshops and stuff.
    The Foundation is for if you're predicted lower than the standard offer, don't do Physics or Maths, or don't achieve your offer by a few grades.
    I do Foundation Physics here and :love: it

    Thank you : I would like to see both timetables if that is possible. I have heard that the people who do the Foundation course usually do better!

    I'm doing MPhys in Astrophysics here at the moment, didn't go for foundation year. I have about 18 hours a week; 9am starts every day (boo) but usually finished by about midday/one. The timetable for foundation years isn't much different but the work is obviously easier. People in my year who did a foundation year really know their stuff and are confident with the course now though.

    Thank you Millertron - that's good to know.

    9am start sounds early though! Is that the same for Foundation course?

    Can someone post the Timetables for Foundation and First Year? Trying to make my mind up and this may just swing it. I'm a mature applicant, have been accepted for Foundation for 2010 but am likely to get a choice to go straight into 1st year so this would really help me.

    Thanks
