BSc (Hons), Full-time Including Foundation Year
, Duration: 5 Years
The foundation year is designed to help you progress to a challenging and exciting career in economics and finance. Our carefully designed curriculum is particularly suitable for those who want to change direction, perhaps not having taken A-levels in mathematics or economics, and for mature applicants returning to study. You will quickly find that willingness to learn and determination is more important than prior knowledge.
The foundation year will help you clarify where your interests lie. Once you have successfully completed your foundation year with the grades needed for your chosen degree course in the Economics & Finance Department, you progress directly into Level 1 of these degree courses:
Economics BSc (Hons);
Economics and Accounting BSc (Hons);
Economics and Business Finance BSc (Hons);
Economics and Management BSc (Hons);
Finance and Accounting BSc (Hons).
The foundation year is hosted by the Department of Mathematics to reflect the essential role of mathematics in your subsequent studies. The course is excellent preparation for the mathematics and study skills needed to progress on to one of our five BSc degrees in Economics and Finance.
The foundation year is an integral part of the BSc degree programme and you can apply for funding from the Student Loans Company for the length of the course - four years, or five if you opt for a placement year.
The foundation year covers material that would usually have been covered in A-level mathematics and economics, so that students are well equipped to begin BSc degrees in economics and finance. All students will take the following modules: Economics; Algebra; Statistics; Calculus; Discrete & Decision Mathematics; Study Skills. The four mathematics modules will all feature the application of mathematics to economics and finance.

Great staff and a mixed, international crowd of students and staff. The union offers plenty of great opportunities to volunteer and join societies that really help you experience new things and meet new people. The campus is really tight so everyone gets on and you’ll make loads of friends. Uxbridge is alright, campus wise, with Liquid and the Union doing most of your nights out and London an hour away on the train if you fancy the big city to do some shopping or the like.
