Leeds is a popular city with students and a great place to study. We can help you reach your potential, during and after your studies. 

At University Centre Leeds we offer a range of Higher Education qualifications which include:

  • Foundation, top-up and bachelor's degrees 
  • PGCEs and Masters 
  • HNC/Ds 
  • Higher Technical qualifications 
  • Nationally recognised higher and degree apprenticeships 

Foundation Degrees are well respected qualifications in their own right and develop specific expertise relevant to a particular sector of industry. 

This includes key transferable skills such as learning skills, management of self, communication skills, ICT and numeracy skills, academic writing skills etc. 

Foundation Degrees are flexible qualifications and are designed to meet the need of employers for highly skilled, work-ready personnel. The qualifications are similar to Higher National Diplomas, but with added emphasis on work-based learning. 

Unless a course states otherwise, Foundation Degrees generally last two years (full time) though some courses offer a part time study option – please see individual course entries for further details. 

You can be confident that our courses are industry relevant and current, written in consultation with employers and key industry partners. 

Students spend the first two years to attain a Foundation Degree, and then have the option to top up their qualification to gain a full honours degree, either with us at University Centre Leeds or at an alternative institution. 

Full-time £8,745, part-time £4,372 (per academic year)* 

*Exceptions apply. Please see individual course pages for details.
