As a Foundation course student, you will take most of your classes at Westminster Kingsway College. Some laboratory classes are taken at City University London. A key element of the course is the tutorial support provided and the emphasis on the development of study skills. This makes the course suitable for mature students who lack formal qualifications or who are returning to study after some years. There is some flexibility to change to a different engineering course after the foundation year, subject to the agreement of the course director concerned.
You may use the study and social facilities at both City University London and Westminster Kingsway College. Assessment is by a combination of formal examinations and coursework.
