基础年

If you don’t have the grades for your chosen undergraduate course, you’re not sure which subject you’d like to take, or you’re returning to study after some time away, you may want to consider an integrated foundation year.

为什么选择基础年? 

Successfully completing this additional year not only guarantees your place on your choice of a range of linked courses, but also that you’ll be better prepared for university study.

The Foundation Year may be for you, if you: 

  • aren’t sure which subject you’d like to specialise in
  • don’t have the right combination of subjects for direct entry into Year 1
  • don’t meet the expected requirements for direct entry into Year 1
  • are returning to education after some time away.

You’ll learn essential skills and knowledge and also benefit from:

    I think we were quite similar when we came to Sussex.

    I applied for the Physics BSc and I didn’t do well enough in my A-levels.

    不,我也不!

    I got offered a Foundation Year because, 像你这样的, I applied for the BSc but I had never heard of a Foundation Year.

    When they offered it to me I thought, “Great! 我可以拿个B和两个c去上大学."

    A-levels课程完全不是我的时代. 那也不是我的!

    I chose the Foundation Year because I felt like I didn’t have the basic knowledge that I needed to start a degree.

    Sussex really set me up for that with the Foundation Year.

    During A-levels I just wasn’t getting it and I wasn’t sure why.

    I kept practising and I even had a private tutor and he said “You have the knowledge but you can’t seem to apply it when it comes to an exam.”

    I think we both suffer from stress during exams.

    We are definitely given a lot of support at Sussex.

    Especially from our Academic Adviser.

    杰基很好,不是吗?!

    她只是听. I know when I say some things it can be stupid and having her in the Foundation Year to support me gave me a lot of confidence.

    She said, “The grades you are getting right now are good enough to go onto a 大师.”

    “Oh! 其实我很擅长这个!”

    是的,我感觉自信多了.

    Both of us were struggling and now we are getting firsts.

    It wasn’t just Jackie, it was also the campus, it’s so beautiful.

    尤其是在夏天. 它总是让我情绪高涨.

    And you can go just 10 minutes out and you’re here. 在这个海滩.

    This is a lovely place to come, especially if you’re stressed from exams.

    There are also plenty of places on campus where you can go and relax.

    它是如此的亲切和好客.

    我有一种直觉. Weird as that sounds I felt, “This is the place where I will be more confident and find myself. I don’t want to be that shy person that was struggling so much at A-levels.”

    现在看着我! 我说个不停!
