    Hi! So I missed out on my offer for just History and so have been given a place on History with a foundation year. I really like UEA and really want to go there but I'm worried about the foundation year, could someone tell me what the foundation year is like? And is there any social stigma about doing a foundation year?

    Thanks!

    I haven't done the foundation year myself but I am a history student who joined via a non-standard route (I came in through a mature student course) and I've never noticed any stigma. I don't think some of the students knew how to categorise me during the first few weeks but that was more due to being a mature student and not having the standard background of a-levels and straight to uni. No issues past that, we're all friends

    History at UEA has been amazing so far and I'm really glad I made the choice to study here.

    I'm doing the foundation year, and no, there isn't any stigma! The only thing I would say is be prepared to do very little History in the first year.
