I am thinking about entering Northumbria Uni for the engineering foundation course to progress onto doing a civil engineering degree. I called up twice about this and both people working at the Uni gave me different responses. The first said this was good, the second said it was not the correct path as the engineering foundation is good for civils. Does anyone know who is correct if they have sat the foundation year? Also what is the quality of the engineering foundation year?

Hi Jan Grafton,

Sorry about the confusion in the messages you have been given. I have looked into this for you, and you would be able to progress onto the Civil Engineering Foundation year, but it is not an automatic progression and this may have been why there was some confusion.

The terms are:
'Students may also, with the agreement from the Faculty, be able to progress on to BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering, depending upon a minimum pass rate being successfully gained in the mathematical modules'.

I hope this helps. In terms of the quality of the foundation year, if you haven't got the grades to go on to the degree then they are a great way to get this additional academic back up and helps build an understanding of this area to better prepare you for your degree.

Emily
