Integrated Foundation Year Offer

Here’s everything you need to know about your offer to study with us

We hope you are having a great summer and are enjoying relaxing now your assessments are over!

We just wanted to provide you with some more information about your offer to study at Northumbria University. In addition to your first choice, you may have noticed that we have also made you an offer for a Foundation Year.

Whilst we hope you get the results you are expecting, we want to give you every opportunity to study with us and the good news is, should you miss out on the grades for your original choice, you will automatically be considered for one of our Foundation Years* relevant to your original first choice.

Foundation Years are an ideal way to prepare for degree study. All of our Foundation Years are fully integrated with our degree courses and if you successfully complete the Foundation Year, you will automatically move onto the degree course you currently have an offer for.


What's next?


Make sure you check your UCAS Track account on the day of Clearing. This is where you will find out which course we are offering you. If you haven’t met the grades for your original choice, you’ll see that we have made you an offer for the relevant Foundation Year. If you would like to find out more about the Foundation Year we have offered, you can call 0800 085 1085 to speak to one of our academics on results day. If you would like to accept the offer, you must accept on UCAS Track**. After you have accepted our offer, you can start to get excited as you will be coming to study at Northumbria University! We’ll then send you a welcome pack in the post.


If you have already applied for accommodation at Northumbria, we ensure that your original place is safe, should you decide to accept our Foundation Year offer.

Student Finance

If you have already applied for Student Finance and have decided to accept our Foundation Year offer, you will need to login to your account on the Student Finance England website and select ‘Change of circumstances’. This is to let them know that you will be studying with us for an extra year.


* You still need to meet the requirements of the Foundation Year
** Within 5 days of results day
