Foundation Studies offers a range of courses and study programmes aimed at people who, for a variety of reasons, have few or no formal qualifications.

Students work towards a number of goals, including basic and life skills such as numeracy and literacy, money management, travel in the community, developing confidence and study skills.

Courses are aimed to suit the student's needs and offer the support needed to help them develop. Students can progress on to other foundation studies courses, work towards ther courses at Uxbridge College or go into employment.

Staff are on hand to help students meet their own challenges and provide a supportive and caring environment.
