BSc Quantitative Social Sciences with Foundation Year
The foundation year of the programme provides students with non-standard entry qualifications a thorough and supportive academic preparation for successful degree level study in the Sheffield Methods Institute. On successful completion of the foundation year, students will progress to one of the four BSc Quantitative Social Science courses offered by the Sheffield Methods Institute. These four courses allow students to study Social Sciences, with a particular emphasis on Criminology, Politics, Management or Sociology.
Foundation Year: One year full-time within the Department for Lifelong Learning.
Levels 1-3: Three years full-time within the Sheffield Methods Institute.
Progression to the Sheffield Methods Institute
Students will progress to the Sheffield Methods Institute after completing their foundation year, subject to meeting progression thresholds which differ across courses and departments. These will be discussed with applicants at interview. These thresholds can also be found by searching for the relevant degree course within the University's Programme Regulations Finder and viewing information relating to 'Year 0'.
