Foundation Years at NMITE

Foundation Years at NMITE are integrated into all our degree courses. If you didn’t get the A-Level results you were hoping for, are thinking of a change in career, or if you did not follow traditional routes into Higher Education, then starting your studies with a Foundation Year may be the right choice for you. You'll develop the key transferable skills and subject-specific knowledge needed to continue into one of NMITE's technical degree courses - and better still, you'll still have the potential to complete your studies faster than many other traditional institutions, and be work-ready too!

Find out more about our Foundation Year options, and associated courses below, or get started on your application.
