Project Description

David Game Swansea College UFP

The David Game College University Foundation Programme (UFP) is a one year full-time foundation course which prepares both British and international students for admission into top UK universities.

The quality of our courses is proven by the success of the students that take them. All of our successful students receive offers from over 98 UK universities. Each year over 70% of our successful students receive offers from top UK universities, as well as the Russell Group Universities.

We are a fast-track route to undergraduate degree studies. Our one year pathway is an A-Level (RQF Level 3) equivalent allowing you to reach university in half the time and at half the cost of the traditional A level route.

You can choose between starting the Foundation Programme in September or January, both intakes will allow you to start university in September, provided you pass the Foundation Programme.

Engineering and Computing

Course Overview

The University Foundation Programme (UFP) Engineering & Computing Foundation Pathway is an intensive one year foundation course, which will prepare you for a wide range of Engineering and Computing bachelor degrees.

The UFP Engineering and Computing foundation course allows students to develop a strong grounding in relevant scientific subjects. This begins by developing their technical skills and encouraging an analytical approach to problem solving. The course covers all the essential topics needed to make a strong start on any technology-based degree course.

As a growing sector worldwide, there has never been more demand for engineering and computing graduates. Whilst science evolves rapidly and computer systems become essential to everyday interactions, technical skills are becoming invaluable.

Course Term Dates

Start in September or January

  • There are two start dates for our foundation courses – September and January.
  • Depending on when prospective students finish their senior school studies, they have the option of beginning their course sooner or slightly later.
  • Both complete in time for a September start at university the following year.
Holidays

  • Holidays vary depending on when the students choose to start the course.
  • Those starting the University Foundation Programme in September, will have a 3-week holiday over Christmas, and a 2-week holiday over Easter.

Assement

The Engineering and Computing foundation course is continually assessed, thus removing the pressure of an end of year examination.

In addition, students are required to complete coursework and practical physics laboratory and computer laboratory sessions. We offer a university approved syllabus which fully prepares students for their undergraduate studies. Our teachers are highly qualified and are specialists in their field. The exceptional standard of education allows students to make a smooth transition to undergraduate degree level.
