Course Summary:
Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don't have the necessary formal qualifications to enter directly onto their chosen Honours degree programme. Develop software development skills in a practical hands-on way on this diverse course. You'll cover a range of technologies - from mobile phones to enterprise applications - across the whole development lifecycle, from understanding requirements through to design and implementation and testing. In your first year, you'll develop interactive games using 3D-graphics. In Year 3, you'll work in a team to design and develop substantial, realistic applications. By Year 4, you'll be ready to tackle complex, concurrent systems involving multiple, interacting components. Along the way, there'll be opportunities to work on live projects for real clients - thoroughly preparing you for a rewarding career. You can take a one-year industrial placement after completing your second year. Most placements are UK-based, but we regularly place students in English-speaking workplaces elsewhere in Europe. It is possible to study a year of the course at a university abroad.

Preston’s such a lovely student city – there’s something on each night and the prices are amazing, it’s really geared toward students. Warehouse and The Ship Inn saw the most of my nights out in town. It’s not really a bustling metropolis, but less distractions = more work done! And if you’re wanting a huge night, Liverpool’s about half an hour on the train and is amazing. My course is great, with fascinating, empathetic teachers who really support and encourage us, and the facilities are top notch. The Student Union is also incredibly supportive, and they always have time for us.

    Honestly I could not recommend UCLan anymore than I am. I wholeheartedly believe that the lecturers are there to help you learn and grow as a person rather to just keep up rankings. You are made to feel like an individual and not just another student.
