An Honours Degree with an Integrated Foundation Stage for Students after O/Ls Pathway with a Guaranteed Progression to a BSc (Hons) / BA (Hons) Degree from University of Northampton – UK.
What is a degree with an integrated foundation?
An Honours Degree with an integrated foundation starts with a 12-month Diploma focused on learning the skills required to complete the rest of the programme successfully. During the Foundation Phase, the students will get an overview of different business sectors and organisational functions. This knowledge together with insights into basics of management, economics and leadership will help the students to make an informed decision on the choice of specialization to be pursued at the Degree stage.
Students will also learn about study skills, communication, teamwork, entrepreneurship and problem-solving techniques which will help them to build their confidence and prepare them for the rest of the learning leading to the Degree. Young students will develop appropriate skills required for academic success and will gain sufficient familiarization with assessment methods and standards required at undergraduate level.
A degree with an integrated foundation is designed for students focusing on tertiary education soon after GCE (O/L). The duration of this pathway will be 4 years enabling a young student to finish an Honours Degree by the age of 20 or 21. This is extremely effective when compared with the traditional route in which a student sits the A/L examination at the age of 19. A critical advantage is the opportunity to start emplyment very eary in life compared to a studennt who pursues A/Ls.
