Foundation

Computing and Technology Foundation courses and degrees provide a basis for deciding what to study at degree level and the chance to make choices about your future professional education and career.

Would you like to enter a degree or higher diploma course in computing or technology but you do not have sufficient grades or appropriate mathematical or scientific A-levels (or equivalents)? A one year Foundation course at Oxford Brookes is the first step toward an honours degree.

Do you have technical skills you would like to build on? A two-year Foundation degree course at a partner college might be just what you need to improve your job prospects for a technological career.
